With a cleaner environment and a security presence we start to change the behavior of everyone ‐ residents, visitors, and businesses. Discover Pacific Beach has developed a Clean and Safe Program to address not just traditional cleaning and security, but to provide the tools needed to make positive change to our unhoused and transient population and to improve the safety and cleanliness of the entire community. The goals of Pacific Beach Clean & Safe are to help unhoused individuals by providing jobs and upward mobility and decrease complaints associated with inappropriate and aggressive behavior.
MEET THE STREET TEAM FINDING WORK IN COMMUNITY‐FINDING COMMUNITY IN WORK Discover Pacific Beach is partnering with Pacific Beach Street Guardians to provide added cleaning services to the public right of way. PBSG offers community education to share about life on the streets and to dispel myths, fears and stereotypes of those who experience homelessness; provides transitional employment for unhoused Team Members to earn money and gain experience for future long‐term employment; and conducts employment and lifeskills training for Team Members to better understand their purpose and callings . If you notice debris or litter in the public right of way, businesses can report it (free of charge). Call Dispatch: 619‐579‐1660
MEET OUR SAFETY AMBASSADORS National Public Safety was founded in 1996 and has provided excellent service to the San Diego community for over 18 years. NPS has a well established 24 Hour Dispatch Center. The dispatch center receives all calls and will dispatch them accordingly. All incoming and outgoing calls are recorded in case of any discrepancies. If you have a security issue, businesses can call at no cost 619‐579‐1660
The Clean and Safe team is equipped to share resources to those in need of services. Here are tips on what you can do to help.
What does Help: 1. Donate to local service providers 2. Donate leftover food to local food banks 3. Volunteer at local service providers 4. Try effective communication
What Doesn’t Help: 1. Giving cash handouts on the streets encourages a culture of dependence 2. Giving left over food on the streets 3. Engaging in arguments, threatening or taking the law into your own hands.
