What is the Community Caretaking Exception and does it serve the same purpose as the Ordinance?

No. The Community Caretaking Exception gives the police the authority to enter a private residence without a warrant if there is suspicion of a medical emergency or other imminent threat to public safety. The Ordinance exists to give police the opportunity to intervene before an emergency or tragedy occurs. Please see the accompanying link about an incident that occurred in town where the Community Caretaking Exception was invoked. Caretaking Example
