There is never a place that is not private where the police can not police. It is crazy the someone can house stolen property on City owned lane and the police afraid to go get it. They might be a best time to help the victim to get it. Like early in the morning when everyone is sleeping or they might need additional resources like a tow truck if something is blocking in the trailer.
There are a couple of concepts that in play here first no one can legally possess stolen property. Second police (and citizens) can use force to protect property. Third if an area is unsafe for police it has to be cleaned up and closed down. There has to be victims suffering that are not known to the police.
The bottom line that this is a terrible circumstance and the police have to take control. First get the victim’s trailer back and secondly clean up that property.

Today, prostitution is illegal in the majority of the United States, but the New York State Senate has two bills looking to decriminalize prostitution throughout the state. One bill would decriminalize selling sex while maintaining punitive measures on buying or promoting sex. The other would decriminalize the entire sex trade.

This guide from Arnold Ventures summarizes evidence about homelessness and provides recommendations for police. Suggestions include fostering collaboration, using data, providing training, and using a problem-oriented approach. The document offers examples from Philadelphia and Wichita, explains the negative consequences of punitive measures, and lists talking points for police to use with the public.
