Hoarding for Law Enforcement and Other Public Officials

Authored by Maria B Spetalnik CPO®
Edition: 1

Imagine yourself canvassing the neighborhood looking for witnesses after a hit and run; or going door to door offering to check smoke alarms after a nearby fire; or stopping at a home after a call came in suggesting that there's a senior citizen who needs help. Imagine the door opens just a few inches and the smell of cat urine and rotting food hits you in the face. Imagine that you see a never ending sea of stacked newspapers inside. Imagine the resident looking at you with an expression of fear mixed with anger. What you say next will determine whether this person can help you, or if you can help them.

Sooner or later public officials find themselves dealing with someone who hoards. The sights, sounds, smells and emotions can be quite overwhelming for the unprepared. This book helps to guide you through the environment with an eye towards the dangers that may be present, as well as giving you a glimpse at the hoarder's thought processes. Finally, the book helps you find clues in the hoard to know how to work with the citizen to achieve the best results.
