The Uptown Whittier Improvement Association’s Ambassador Program brings additional safety and security to the Uptown Whittier District.
Uniformed Ambassadors patrol the Uptown Whittier District every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. - a total of 200 hours per month. Patrol days and hours may be subject to changes during holiday periods.
In addition to proactively responding to nuisances like loitering, skateboarding, and public intoxication, Ambassadors work closely with the Whittier Police Department and will dispatch 911 in situations involving crime or theft. The Ambassador team is also available to escort patrons and residents to their vehicle, offer directions, and provide information about the District.
