Clean and Safe
Downtown Longmont’s partnership with the City of Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources (PWNR) and the Longmont Police Department (LPD) helps ensure a clean, safe and welcoming environment to all who live, work or visit downtown. Keeping downtown clean and safe provides a positive downtown experience and helps support economic development efforts. LDDA funds designate PWNR crews to maintain the integrity of the downtown streets and alleys daily while monitoring and remediating potential safety concerns.
Downtown is one of the safest neighborhoods in Longmont due also in part to the LPD’s exceptional mission to create and preserve public safety. The LPD was selected as one of the Top Ten Community Policing Departments in the nation by the US Department of Justice. This designation is based on the significant effort and commitment by police officers and staff, together with citizens to work together to make Longmont a safe community.
