Public Safety


Safety first. It’s what makes City Ave so livable. Security is our top priority for residents, workers and visitors in the District.


We employ a team of full-time and part-time Community Service Representatives (CSRs). You’ll see them around, patrolling the District on bicycles and Segways. They often interact with both the Lower Merion and Philadelphia Police Departments in their mission to keep the District safe.


The CSRs are also very helpful to have around, as they can give directions, assist people with car problems, administer first aid and provide other important services.


In fact, you can contact one of our CSRs right now by clicking here.


Join your neighbors and police officers for complimentary coffee and conversation at Corner Bakery Cafe (Bala Cynwyd Shopping Center) on May 3rd  (8:30-11:30a)! Coffee with a Cop is your chance to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers in your neighborhood!
