Property Support and Programs


Clean and Safe Support

Our purple-shirt ambassadors work around the clock seven days a week keeping the sidewalks within the BID clean and safe. Safety Ambassadors respond to non-emergency calls from businesses, while Maintenance Ambassadors remove litter from sidewalks, remove weeds and debris, remove and clean biohazards, abate minor public facing graffiti and stickers, and more. Each one of our staff is a Certified Tourism Ambassador, providing information on downtown to visitors, all while keeping downtown safe and clean.

DTP Connects Houseless Outreach

In collaboration with various Tucson nonprofits, DTP is making an effort to assist houseless individuals and reduce homelessness in our city. Through a partnership with La Frontera, individuals experiencing homelessness receive on-site interviews and assessments provided by a dedicated community engagement specialist via a DTP Connects mobile unit accompanied by our Safety Ambassadors. The assessment determines whether the individual has completed a Vulnerability Index – Service Prioritization and Decision Assessment Tool (VI SPDAT). To be eligible for supportive housing, a client must first complete the VI SPDAT. The mobile unit continues to make contact with individuals every Wednesday.
