Throughout the district, you will see our "District Safety" officers. These officers are professionally supplied through Universal Protection Services, and are well-trained in topics ranging from customer service to drug abuse recognition (DAR). Additionally, the DCBID is the first BID to start it's own BID Academy, in which our safety staff attends classes above and beyond state requirements. In total, our safety staff completes over 300 hours of training!
Our safety staff serves as additional eyes and ears for the Los Angeles Police Department, maintaining a professional relationship with all local law enforcement and city entities. They also provide safety services during various significant events throughout all of Downtown, including the Los Angeles Marathon, Fiesta Broadway, Giant Village, various demonstrations, and more.
