Panama City - Panama City Police say they want to review the impact of two new laws before they begin enforcing them, They are devising guidelines for the new panhandling and nuisance ordinances.

Critics say these two laws target the city's homeless community. But police say this review has nothing to do with the sensitive nature of the new laws.

"Anytime there's a law change, we go through this a couple times a year with state laws and command staff will look at those and then we'll implement change," Lt. Robert Luther said.

Once the review is finished, officers will be trained on enforcement of the new laws. Then, they will inform the public once they begin enforcing them.
