HPD officers were out on horseback, patrolling the streets. There were other officers in patrol cars making some arrests.
Officials say they are concentrating their efforts around the Greyhound bus station on Main Street as well as the Pierce Elevated. HPD says this is a fairly routine roundup done in response to complaints from residents and businesses in the surrounding area of the homeless either panhandling or committing petty crimes.
Officers were out giving warnings to some, while others were taken into custody. Authorities say they want to help and educate those arrested today.
