Our team of full-time Downtown Safety Ambassadors act as the eyes and ears of the downtown core. They patrol 7 days a week from 8 AM to 11 PM, with a focus on providing a safe presence throughout the catchment


  • Conducting meet and greets with local businesses
  • Patrolling hot spot parkades and parks to assist with any quality of life concerns they observe
  • Assist by providing a uniformed presence, or by calling the police if any illegal behaviour is observed
  • All members of our team are licensed security guards, trained in first-aid, mental health first aid, Indigenous awareness, and conflict resolution.

Downtown Safety Ambassadors have been a positive presence in the downtown core since 2000. Easy to spot and always ready to help, they work closely with the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Police Department, and other organizations.

Crime prevention is a priority concern for downtown businesses. Safety Ambassadors play a key role in alleviating these concerns by identifying and reporting crime-related incidents, illegal behaviour, vandalism, graffiti and environmental and safety hazards.
