In the case of San Francisco, COHSF survey results suggest that the most likely outcome of interactions between police and homeless people is an order to "move along." This outcome is especially pronounced among those with mental illness.
In the COHSF survey, nearly 70 percent (69.3) of those living with a mental disability reported being removed from the formerly downtrodden, but now rapidly gentrifying, Western Addition, Civic Center, South of Market, and Mission neighborhoods.
In the COHSF interviews, when asked how police requests to move made them feel, 90 percent answered that it made them feel less safe.
