Program Description

  Enhanced Security and Ambassadorship

This program promotes clean, safe, and welcoming Urban Districts through uniformed aides. The program provides visual deterrents and/or trained observer documentation for theft, vandalism, and violations in the Silver Spring and Wheaton Urban Districts. Aides also act as ambassadors by providing information, directions, first aid and CPR, and roadside assistance to residents, visitors, and the business.

The goal of the program is to provide an enhanced physical presence and reduce the likelihood of crime. The Safe Team serves as an uniformed visual presence that promotes a safer environment and supports residents and visitors.
