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.
