City of West Hollywood (WEHO)

West Hollywood, California

The City of West Hollywood partners with Block by Block on its Security Ambassador program, which has a direct positive impact on safety and neighborhood livability. The program has expanded with 30 additional Security Ambassadors, for a total of 85 Block by Block personnel.

First established in the City of West Hollywood in 2013, the West Hollywood Block by Block Security Ambassador program provides a highly visible uniformed presence at the street level. Block by Block Security Ambassadors are deployed on bicycles along major streets, alleys, City parking lots, and residential neighborhoods.

Block by Block Security Ambassadors leverage the effectiveness of local law enforcement and work in collaboration with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station. In addition to supplemental safety services, Block by Block Security Ambassadors also get to know West Hollywood’s neighborhoods and assist in providing an extra level of hospitality to visitors and help to address quality of life concerns in the community. Security Ambassadors work seamlessly to:

  • Maintain uniformed foot and bicycle patrols throughout all City neighborhoods, including a new program expansion into residential neighborhoods;
  • Provide in-person responses 24/7 to non-violent calls for service;
  • Conduct safety escorts for residents, businesses, and visitors; and
  • Offer helpful guidance to community members and visitors about City information, directions, parking, and more.

The Block by Block program maintains a number of staffed kiosks focused on safety as well as hospitality in West Hollywood with specific emphasis on supporting a more robust and accessible presence where people shop, walk, and enjoy recreation.

Commercial district kiosks function daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; the kiosk at West Hollywood Park is staffed daily from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m.; and the Plummer Park kiosk is staffed daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The aim of the kiosks is to expand the City’s supplemental safety services, as well as to provide an extra level of hospitality to businesses, community members, and visitors.

Kiosk locations are as follows in the City’s commercial districts:

(1)  Santa Monica Boulevard at N. La Brea/The Gateway

(2)  Santa Monica Boulevard at Fairfax Avenue/Center City

(3)  Santa Monica Boulevard at Westmount Drive/Rainbow District

(4)  Santa Monica Boulevard at N. Robertson Boulevard/Rainbow District
