But now, the city has announced it will spend $160,000 on two pilot projects to provide 210 more storage lockers for those experiencing homelessness. Some service providers say the announcement is a move in the right direction for the city, which has found itself the subject of harsh criticism and even a federal class-action lawsuit over the enforcement of its camping ban.
The RPD's Safety Deposit Room is packed with useful resources, but not all of them are accessible at first. To get everything in those pesky electronically sealed lockers, you'll need to get two replacement keypad keys. These can be found inside Pocket Safes scattered throughout the police station. To open a Pocket Safe, simply examine it and then input the correct button pattern. This require a little bit of trial and error to find out, but keep at it and you'll unlock it in no time. Below you can find details on where each Pocket Safe is located.
The storage lockers were a “pilot,” the kind of small test that city government frequently uses to test a new or controversial idea. The city offered up the lockers for individuals to use for months-long stretches. At the time, city officials warned that “misuse of the lockers, vandalism, or other unanticipated results,” could force them to cancel the project.
