SPD Safe Place Application

Signing up to become a participant in the SPD SAFE PLACE Initiative is easy, FREE, open to businesses and schools.  You will receive a free Safe Place sticker for your business, training materials and a flyer.  Additional training is available please email Officer Korieo for availability.

Participation is restricted to specific entities such as Businesses and/or Corporations, Social Service Organizations, Schools & Government Agencies that have a space open to the public, and staff present on site for a good portion of the day that can call 911 for the victim.  Due to safety concerns, this program is NOT designed, or authorized for individual and/or residential use. 

Prior to submitting your application, you must read and acknowledge the training portion of this document (below).  Not understanding your responsibilities when participating in the SPD SAFE PLACE Initiative will have a negative impact on your business, organization, government, and most importantly, the victims of these crimes.

Placement of Decals

Once you receive your SPD SAFE PLACE decal, you must place it at the front/public entrance of your establishment.  The placement location of the decal should be readily visible to the public from the sidewalk.  Most establishments place the decal on their glass doors, or windows, 4'-6' up from the ground, so that the victims of crime who may be running by can easily see the decal and recognize the symbolism and messaging.  More information about the decals.
