Announcing the return of our Ambassadors

Monday, November 25, 2013, 12:30 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


In partnership with CSPD’s Gold Hill Division, the Colorado Springs Fire Department and the business associations in Downtown and westside Old Colorado City, our CAPS [Community Advancing Public Safety] Volunteer Ambassadors will be back in service during the holiday shopping season.

Beginning Saturday, November 30th through Sunday, December 22nd from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, while serving as public safety advocates, Ambassadors will greet guests, welcome shoppers, answer questions concerning directions, local merchants and services, and provide helpful information about our city.  All this – in the hopes of making our residents and guests experience a most enjoyable one.

They can be easily spotted as they will be sporting holiday red fleece vests with AMBASSADOR on the back and carrying backpacks filled with valuable information.

If you happen to be enjoying dinner at one of the many wonderful restaurants, sharing a latte at a specialty coffee house or shopping for the little ones; make sure to look for our “Ambassadors.”
