SafeZone is a subsidiary of the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District.
Minneapolis Safe City Begins With You! Working together to improve our public safety in the heart of the downtown area. The Minneapolis SafeZone is bringing the public and private sectors together to make the heart of downtown safe and welcoming for those who work, live or visit here. In December of 2004, the downtown business community approached city leadership to ask for efforts to increase downtown safety. As a result of this, the Minneapolis SafeZone Collaborative for Downtown was formed by the Minneapolis Police Department. On August of 2006, Minneapolis SafeZone Collaborative was officially approved by the state of Minnesota to run as 501C3 non-profit organization. In July 2009, SafeZone became subsidiary of the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District. We will continue to focus on public safety with both the public and private sectors, leverage our collaborative partnerships, technology, communication resources and strategic initiatives in efforts to improve public safety for downtown Minneapolis.
