A day with the Eviction Assistance Unit

Deputies Joe Crittle and Diego Perez

When a landlord and a tenant are involved in a dispute, an eviction from the property is the last resort. And when evictions do occur in San Francisco, there are two people who are involved with every single one. They both make up the Eviction Assistance Unit at the Sheriff’s Department, but they don’t really act like cops. Their job is to visit anybody served an eviction notice and try to connect them to resources.

KALW’s Ninna Gaensler-Debs takes us through a day in their lives.
