PROGRAMS - CLEAN & SAFE
Security Service Program
The Highland Park BID’s Safe & Clean team, in partnership with General Security Service and Chrysalis, is committed to assisting those who work, live, and play in the Highland Park area. This highly visible team of purple-shirted safety officers and maintenance staff provide daily, 24-hour supplemental services to maintain safety and cleanliness within the district. The Patrol is highly trained to ensure that your visit to the Highland Park area is memorable and safe.
In order to consistently deal with maintenance issues like graffiti, trash and bulky items, the Maintenance Program, which began in 2001 will be continued and expanded. In order to effectively deal with the many maintenance issues, in the District, a multi-dimensional approach has been developed consisting of the following elements: trash collection, sidewalk maintenance, graffiti removal, weed abatement, tree trimming and landscaping, paper sign and handbill removal, special collections, maintenance problems requiring third party intervention, design elements, special projects and right of way consulting. The clean team will only provide service to properties within District boundaries. The special benefit to property owners from these services is increased commerce through the attraction of pedestrians, commercial leases and retention of commercial leases for parcels within BID boundaries. The above services will only be provided to the individual assessed parcels within the BID boundaries and therefore parcels outside of the boundaries will not receive special benefit.
BID PATROL & SAFETY
The Highland Park BID Patrol provides security services for the area located within the boundaries of the district. The purpose of the Patrol is to prevent, deter, and report illegal activities taking place on the streets, sidewalks, storefronts, parking lots, and alleys of the district. They maintain communication with the LAPD patrols and the LA Sheriff’s Department.
