Encampment Management Team

Encampment Response

The Encampment Management Team (EMT) is an interdepartmental working group tasked with implementing and administering the Encampment Management Policy, consisting of representatives from Oakland’s Public Works Department (OPW), Human Services Department (HSD), Oakland Police Department (OPD), Oakland Fire Department (OFD), the City Administrator’s Office (CAO), and other consulted departments as necessary (e.g., the Mayor’s Office, the City Attorney’s Office, Parks and Recreation). The EMT is facilitated by the City Administrator's Office via the Homelessness Administrator.
