What We Do

Public Safety & Hospitality

Hospitality means something a bit different for Business Improvement Districts. In our case, it’s the goal of being hospitable through services offered by our Downtown Baltimore Guides (DBGs), our homeless outreach services, and integrated security services throughout Downtown.
