Curious who the folks are wearing bright yellow in Wilmington, DE?

Join us in congratulating 13 of our newest cleaning & safety ambassadors that completed a two weeks academy and are now actively serving in Downtown Wilmington!

The academy provides an in-depth review of policies, practices & procedures including customer service training, patrol tactics, expectations of ambassadors, trained weaponless defense and conflict de-escalation training through the Wilmington Police Department.

Downtown Visions employs more than 30 uniformed Safety Ambassadors to assist the Wilmington Police Department in keeping Downtown Wilmington safe as well as provide public services. 

Each Safety Ambassador receives over 80 hours of in-house training in addition to field training on topics such as crime prevention, customer service, local history and local attractions. 

Every Ambassador wears a distinctive black and yellow uniform and carries a two-way radio. You can find our Safety Ambassadors patrolling the BID on foot and on bikes. Feel free to approach our Safety Ambassadors and request information about downtown. They can give you directions, information on restaurants, hotels and local shops — just ask!
