After a Facebook user made the claim that Killeen Police Department’s Homeless Outreach Team was going to be shut down, citing a comment from the team’s leader, Officer Kyle Moore, to the user’s relative, Moore was quick to dispell the rumor.

“We are not shutting down the program ... There must be a miscommunication…” Moore replied in a comment to the user.

Moore and the Homeless Outreach Team make it an effort to provide help to the city’s homeless population by providing them with food, water, and other basic necessities. Moore also provides the homeless with welfare checks.

Moore and KPD will also be hosting an event on Saturday at 412 E. Sprott Street in downtown Killeen.

Why don't they actually work on doing something for these folks besides water and food. It is disgraceful how nasty the area has become with all of the homeless camping out at downtown businesses, walking around naked or near naked in the streets, and standing in the street and stopping traffic (this happened today). There's a huge group of them that just sit around all day doing nothing and there are a few that stand on the corners begging. Obviously most of them are too lazy to even get off their behinds and pickup after themselves because there is always tons of trash where they camp out. Why don't you guys actually work on a solution instead of throwing a cheap bandaid at it and hoping for the best.
