Safety Ambassadors function as community service representatives for the downtown BID and serve, in part, as extra "eyes and ears" of the Wilmington Police Department. Ambassadors patrol specific sectors of the downtown to observe and serve as a source of information to the public, businesses, residents, tourists and other people downtown.
Safety Ambassadors are a uniformed patrol who act as a positive, friendly and welcoming presence in the BID. We work in partnership with the police, provide information about sites of interest, give directions, provide safety escorts check on parking lots and garages, assist tourists, interact with visitors, and check in on businesses in the district. Safety Ambassadors may also support any downtown events as needed, such as the Downtown Wilmington Farmers Market and First Night. Ambassadors work on a rotating schedule consisting of a day shift (from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm.) and a night shift (from 4:00 p.m. to midnight), including some weekends and holidays.
