Safe Night LLC provides municipal staff the tools needed to establish a multi-agency unified strategy and implement "A Safe Night Out". This approach is available to municipality agencies in a four-day class for or in a one-day overview workshop.
Safe Night provides training and strategies needed to reduce alcohol related harm and improve economic viability in nightlife and entertainment areas.
Conducting economic and social impact research will support allocation of resources and funding for all involved agencies.
Relationships and collaboration are the keys to improving nightlife safety. Include all individuals and agencies that have a vested interest in establishing a safe and economically viable entertainment area.
The Proactive Alliance Approach is the foundation for establishing trust with business owners and the community. Using methods adapted from psychological counseling therapy concepts, staff will learn how to facilitate cooperation rather than demanding it.
Introducing the Safe Night Active Bystander training to your community can increase safety and awareness to sexual assault and harassment. Communities that make safety a priority are more likely to thrive and be economically viable.
Empower bar and restaurant staff to comply with the law and adopt effective practices by introducing an accreditation model, training, policies, and expectations. The benefits will be a reduction of alcohol related harm, reduced liability for staff, and a safe environment for patrons.
Public-private partnerships can improve safety, efficiency, and quality of life. For example, coordinated efforts such as establishing loading zones for ride-share vehicles and taxis and using dedicated shuttles are ways to get people home safely.
A Safe Night Out is supported by research in reducing alcohol related harm. The clearest indication of effectiveness resulted from multi-component programs such as ours. Find more information in: Reducing Harm in Drinking Environments - Evidence and Practice in Europe (2010)
In December 2021, Safe Night conducted a nightlife assessment of strategies and practices used by the City of Dallas to manage its nightlife areas. Safe Night also provided recommendations to city agencies and 24HourDallas to implement a problem-oriented approach, adopt a unified nightlife strategy, and create a full-time nightlife team. The report was provided to 24HourDallas and the City of Dallas leadership.
In April 2022, Safe Night provided nightlife management training, called A Safe Night Out, to staff from the City of Dallas, Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and 24HourDallas. The students completed a survey that overwhelmingly supports the multi-component nightlife model and the Proactive Alliance relationship-based approach. Lastly, students feel they will be able to apply the knowledge learned, have more resources to work with in the field and improve collaborative problem-solving.
