Assume the role of a police officer on patrol. You have been dispatched to a high school, where a homeless man has camped in a vacant lot across from the school property in a box. He does not bother anyone, but students pass by him throughout the day on the adjacent sidewalk. The lot is county property. A school administrator has called the police and asked that he be told to move.
How would you handle this situation?

Do you have a local homeless shelter? (Research the Internet to locate one; cite your source.)
Are there any religious organizations you could call? (Research the Internet; cite your source.)
If the homeless person refuses to leave, how will you use your discretion?
