Clean Team data is provided by Chrysalis. Safe Team data is provided by Allied Universal.
1 Includes noise complaints, misuse of bikes and scooters, and public drinking/smoking/urination/defecation.
2 Includes safety escorts, responding to alarms, medical emergency/accident responses, and lost individuals.


As you know, the VB BID works with LA City and County entities to improve service delivery for our district. The BID tries to align our services to complement rather than overlap City services whenever possible so our district is as clean and safe as it can be. Most recently we’ve coordinated with the Park Rangers to help keep Westminster Park clean and safe. The Venice Bridge Home is scheduled to open on February 25, 2020, and our teams are reaching out to build productive channels of communication. Our goal is to develop strong, working relationships with all of the LA City, County, and nonprofit personnel assigned to our Bridge Home facility. We are also currently working with LA Sanitation to help us conduct enhanced community cleanups within our district, and we’ll be reporting on that activity next month.
