The Metro Support Bureau (MSB) is designed to flex and scale in response to the primary public safety issue facing the city. Launched July 6, 2014, the bureau currently focuses on public safety in the area from North Temple to 700 South, Interstate 15 to State Street. Department statistics show that a significant percentage of police service requests originate in the area—due in no small part to drug buyers and sellers concealing their criminal activity among homeless individuals who seek assistance from social service providers located in the MSB service area.
