Mayor Launches Ambassadors Program in Southeast Sector
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today launched a permanent Community Ambassadors Program (CAP) in the City’s Southeast sector. Following a successful year-long pilot that ended in June, CAP employs a 12-member team of multiethnic Ambassadors speaking a total of eight different languages to assist residents and provide a visible, non-law enforcement presence in busy transit and business corridors along the MUNI Third Street and #9 San Bruno bus routes. The Ambassadors serve as role models and provide residents with safety tips, safe passage, language assistance, and information on critical City services and programs such as 311, MUNI, Healthy SF, City ID Card, and language complaint procedures.
“The Community Ambassadors Program is a great example of how the City, community and private sector can come together to develop innovative and effective public safety solutions,” said Mayor Lee. “Our communities and neighborhoods deserve nothing less than our very best effort, and we’ve got a lot of work to do.” Read more.
