City of Fremont Mayor Lily Mei today released a correction regarding the open letter to the Fremont community addressing homelessness dated July 29, 2019: 

August 9, 2019

It recently came to my attention that we communicated an inaccurate statistic. It turns out that homeless-related issues constitute roughly 10% of the calls for service requiring police response from the Fremont Police Department, not 50% as previously shared.

I apologize for the error which came from a staff report that explained “More than half of our homeless related calls for service are initiated in the Central Policing Area/Downtown.”

We’ve updated public documents accordingly which you can find at the following links:

Sincerely,

Lily Mei
