Clean & Safe Program

Our Downtown Ambassadors work together with the San Luis Obispo Police Department to make sure our Downtown community is safe, clean, and hospitable to visitors. The Ambassadors welcome tourists to the area, establish and maintain relationships with local businesses and shopkeepers, provide necessary services and interact with panhandlers and transients as needed, remove graffiti & litter, and serve as a representative of Downtown SLO, among other duties. An ambassador will likely be the first point of contact for many situations and the ideal result of that interaction will be a positive outcome for all parties. Downtown Ambassadors are dressed in grey shirts with the Downtown SLO logo on it.


You can reach the Ambassadors via the hotline at (805) 250-6467.
