Zoning Sweetwater Branch Tent Camp
A homeless camp is a little less isolated now that police have marked the paths in and out.
Two Gainesville police officers mapped out the area around the Sweetwater Branch Tent Camp on foot and in a helicopter.
The goal is to make it easier for first responders to find people who call for help.
There are now three different zones of the camp with 40 residents total.
The two officers, after identifying the zones, went back and told each resident which zone they were in and what to tell dispatch if they need help.
