Safe Night LLC 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 Relationship-Based Approach is the foundation of establishing trust with business owners and the community. Using methods adapted from Motivational Interviewing, an evidence-based practice, staff will learn how to facilitate cooperation rather than dictating and demanding it. Businesses need mutually-beneficial relationships with public safety and enforcement agencies to increase safety and economic viability.
Introducing the Safe Night Active Bystander training to your community can increase safety and awareness to sexual assault and harassment.
Empower restaurant staff to comply with the law and adopt effective practices by providing training, policies, and expectations. The benefits of staff participating in training will be measured in a reduction of alcohol related harm, reduced liability for staff, and a safe environment for patrons. Safe Night will demonstrate how to introduce an accreditation model for restaurants and bars using the Best Bar None scheme.
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.
Local offices of economic development, business improvement districts, and bureaus of tourism need strategies to improve safety and economic viability. This includes expectations of local police, fire, and enforcement agencies that will help businesses rather than focus solely on enforcement. This one-day training provides a blueprint to work with the local municipality to coordinate a unified strategy based on mutually-beneficial relationships.
