Collaboration Makes Downtown Safe

It’s not chance that makes Downtown one of the safest areas of the city. Public and private partnership makes safety a priority.

Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs play key role. They lead the Security Managers Information Network of Ohio (SMINO), which connects security professionals with police officers in real time to make sure that no crime goes unnoticed.

The SIDs organize preparedness training for downtown public and private partners, and through a secured website and an 800MHZ radio network, downtown security professionals and Columbus Division of Police share vital information – immediately.

The National Homeland Security Association recognized SMINO and The Columbus Division of Police as a national model. See for yourself how we make Downtown one of the best places to live, work and play.
