Parking and Safety

Please bear in mind that City Center is situated in the heart of the city and theft does occur. The following tips were created by the neighboring Shambhala Center:

1. Keep vehicles empty and clear of any visible items, valuable or not, to make them as untempting a target as possible.

2. Do report incidents. This helps the police and other city agencies know what is happening so they can allocate city resources appropriately. In general: call 9-1-1 for emergencies or crimes in progress, and call 3-1-1 to reach all other non-emergency city services.
