Venice Beach BID Community Update - August 2019

September 23, 2019



Since starting operations in May 2018, we’ve done our best to stay accountable to our BID district by providing a monthly activity report. Recently we asked our vendor partners, Chrysalis and Allied Universal, to provide some additional data that we want to share with the community.

Clean Team Stats

Venice is home to many unhoused people who live on our streets with limited access to toilets. As a result, our Clean Team is often called upon to remove human feces and urine. They do it promptly and safely. It’s a great service to our community, so we decided to add an accounting of that activity. The new category also includes removal of waste when dog owners fail to clean up after their pets.

Safe Team Stats

Our Safe Team’s duties are extensive and nuanced. Categorizing them is based on decisions made by Allied Universal’s Safe Team leadership. The new Community Assistance category covers everything from handing out bandaids to providing directions. Community Safety & Security include such things as safety escorts, responding to alarms, medical emergency and accident responses, and lost children.
