Downtown Concierge


We know you care—we all do. Sometimes you might want to give spare change to a panhandler. But what if you’re just feeding an addiction? Instead, give kindness by donating to an organization that truly helps the homeless.

Homeless Outreach

No pretending. Homelessness is a problem all over, and we’re trying to make a difference. Two, full-time specialists make it their business to connect people in need with services. It’s like giving a hand up instead of a hand out.

Graffiti Removal

Power-washing ambassadors are at the ready to clean up unsightly and unfortunate street-level building tags, if necessary.

Research & Data

When you need facts and figures about Downtown Columbus, including number of workers, residents, housing construction and investments, this is where to start.

State of Downtown

Take a  look at the growth and vitality within our central business district.

Safety Patrols

Pedaling from the Topiary Park to Roosevelt Coffee to Franklin University and everywhere in between, our safety ambassadors rack up the miles as they bike through the Discovery District. They’re not hard to miss in red and black uniforms. Oh, and they’ll be the ones smiling and waving as they ride by.

Special Duty

Downtown is safe, and we plan on keeping it that way. To stay ahead of the game, the SID hires special-duty police officers to work with our Downtown Ambassadors.

Ambassador Chaperone

The weatherman promised sunny skies, but looking out your office window tells a different story. Give us a call at (614) 228-5718. An ambassador will come to the rescue—umbrella in hand. Or, if you get stuck in the office late after a client meeting, Downtown Ambassadors will walk you to your car or bus line.


To get stuff done, work together, right? Behind the scenes, the SID connects security managers and the police in real-time radio communication.
