Call a Free Safety Escort 7 Days a Week

Did you know that every day of the week, you can call on one of the DLBA’s Safety Ambassadors to escort you to and from a place in the central business district? We understand that if DTLB isn’t clean and safe, it’s not really a place to put pride or investment into. So whether you’re out late with friends, parked in an unfamiliar place, or are visiting Downtown for the first time, DLBA’s Safety Ambassadors are just a phone call away.

During regular program hours, anyone within the District boundaries can call 562-244-1365 to request a Friendly Safety Escort. Typical response time is about 5 minutes and the Ambassador can escort you to your car, building, hotel or workplace. Have friends coming to DTLB and using our parking structures or lots? Give them the number so they can call when they arrive. Hotel concierges, restaurant and bar security staff or building managers will want to keep our Safe Team phone number handy. Safety Escorts are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
