Safety Team

Our downtown Safety Ambassadors are on the ground seven days a week in six downtown neighborhoods assisting visitors, residents, workers and homeless individuals. From providing directions to out-of-towners, to aiding downtown’s unsheltered population, this dedicated team helps keep downtown safe, welcoming and livable.

Ambassador Shout Out

A big thanks to all ambassadors who have braved a very wet winter to provide service in our parks, public spaces and to residents, employees, visitors and people in need downtown.

Safety Team Ambassador of the Month: Guen

September was a pivotal month for Guen. She took ownership of her position as Team 1 Assistant Supervisor and attended Assistant Manager training at Archbright. Guen is already using what she learned at Archbright in the office and the field. Guen also accepted the opportunity to become a Management of Aggressive Behavior trainer and is excited to get her certification in November.

Guen’s teammates appreciate her warm, cheerful attitude and feel comfortable coming to her for guidance and advice. She has a remarkable ability to handle conflicts and difficult situations with patience and tact.

Guen is dependable, efficient and unfailingly punctual. Her work is truly a reflection of DSA’s mission and values.

Please join us in congratulating Guen as our Safety Team employee of the month for September 2019.
