Centro San Antonio


UTSA Partners with Centro San Antonio 

The Department of Public Safety works closely with Centro San Antonio to enhance a wide range of services and resources that support a safe, clean and welcoming campus experience in the downtown area. Through this partnership, Centro provides trained ambassadors to conduct daily patrols and offer safety escorts on and around the university’s Downtown and Southwest campuses, as well as at San Pedro I.

Centro ambassadors patrol walking paths, parking lots and the perimeters of the university’s downtown locations in the mornings and evenings. Working in teams of two, the ambassadors travel between campuses on bicycles, reporting incidents and unlawful activity to the UTSA Police Department (UTSAPD). The teams are trained in local laws and ordinances to improve safety and discourage illegal or uncivil behavior.

Centro ambassador services are available year-round, seven days a week.

Additionally, Centro teams provide support to the individuals they encounter while on patrol who may be experiencing homelessness or are in crisis. Centro ambassadors offer information and assistance, directing individuals in need to community resources, such as shelter, housing and referral services.
