They take up an enormous proportion of every city's resources and as a quasi-military force they aren't capable of dealing with homelessness other than breaking up their camps and telling them to move along. Police forces should be shrunken and replaced with social workers who are better able to handle a large number of daily police interactions.
The mayors of the cities tell the police what to do. Mayors should not be using the police to do social work in the first place. The police are designed to deal with crime and criminals, like the arrest of "big" George Floyd.
