About the Safety Escort Program

This Safety Escort Program will contract with a reputable community-focused security service to provide on-call Safety Ambassadors in the general downtown area during weekend nights. With a call or a text anyone can request an Ambassador to walk them to or from their vehicle, building, hotel, or workplace. The service will have a special focus on supporting retail and nightlife employees.
