"This is definitely not what we want," said Hamilton. 

He said the city hopes to train hundreds of outreach workers in de-escalation tactics.

"A lot of our strategies are not confronting people and becoming a target yourself but being able to be a calming force and be a rational voice of reason in some of these violate situations," said Hamilton.
