We hope these enhanced service hours provide guests, residents and tourists with the opportunity to enjoy all that the city has to offer this summer.

Each ambassador receives 80 hours of in-house training in addition to field training on topics such as crime prevention, customer service, local history and local attractions. They can give you directions, information on restaurants, hotels and local shops — just ask!

The ambassadors also offer a safety escort service. Simply call (302) 425-4200 x1 to request a free Safety Escort anywhere within the neighborhood.
