Our priority is to keep Union Square safe. We are proud of our collaboration with businesses and law enforcement.
Over 400 security cameras are installed within the District.
Received a $1,200,000 grant funded by Silicon Valley Community Foundation and $900,000 from the Chris Larsen Fund to enhance District security.
Over 2,900+ video requests from law enforcement agencies (SFPD, DA, Public Defender) and citizens have been made since the start of the program.
“The San Francisco Police Department’s work with the BID is the model on how partnerships make our community safer. Through community engagement, our “Park Smart” educational campaign and other crime prevention strategies we ensure that visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience in Union Square. The installation of 350+ security cameras have both served as a deterrent and have been an incredible tool in identifying those responsible for crime.”
