When you host your next meeting in San Francisco, it's not just the San Francisco Travel team who you can count on. There are a number of people ready to assist you in creating an unforgettable experience for your attendees.
San Francisco Police
San Francisco Police officers are always on patrol along the streets outside The Moscone Center on event days. You may seem them on bikes, motorcycles, or on foot. Additionally, officers who specialize in homeless outreach will be in the neighborhood on those mornings.
The SFPD also has a team of Community Ambassadors. These are experienced, retired officers who carry police radios, allowing them to call for assistance from active officers if required.
Community Benefit Districts
A number of San Francisco's neighborhoods have their own designated Community Benefit Districts. This allows them to fund programs and services that keep the neighborhood clean and safe.
Among them are the Union Square Alliance and the Yerba Buena Community Benefit Districts. Workers from each of these outfits are prepared to assist with wayfinding, street cleaning, and more.
San Francisco Travel worked in partnership with Block by Block and with the full support of Mayor London Breed to launch the Welcome Ambassador program in October 2021.
Our Ambassadors are stationed in some of San Francisco's busiest and most popular neighborhoods to provide assistance with everything from directions to restaurant recommendations to translation services.
The program has been a tremendous success, recognized within the tourism industry as an exemplary service and awarded City funding through the 2024/2025 fiscal year.
