Safety and Security

Safety is a principal concern in every urban core, and ensuring our Downtown is safe and secure is a top priority for DDP and the BIZ.

We work actively with the City of Detroit, Detroit Police Department and numerous other public and private community stakeholders on comprehensive strategies and implementation plans. These plans and partnerships have created the infrastructure needed to support a unified approach to securing Downtown that includes successful solutions, such as the deployment of BIZ and privately funded off-duty police officers under the city’s secondary employment program and Project Lighthouse.

Public and private safety and security experts have come together to create Project Lighthouse, a multifaceted initiative designed to maximize the effectiveness of safety and security efforts by sharing data(CompStat), providing safe shelter for individuals in distress (Lighthouse Locations) and the infrastructure and network for real-time communications (Lighthouse Radio).
