Calling the police on homeless men smoking crack?

“I live in a condo building that overlooks an alley. I have witnessed homeless men smoking crack on a few occasions and felt conflicted about calling the police. I mean, if I were homeless, I’d probably want to be in a numb state, too. If I call the police and they get arrested, they end up getting thrown in jail and doesn’t solve the problem. If I let them be, I have crackheads in my alley. The other day, I yelled at them that I already called the police (which I didn’t) and they thanked me and moved on. What’s your opinion?”
