Business owners release security plan for Broadway St.
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- One of San Francisco's top destinations for nighttime entertainment is getting cleaned up.
On Thursday, club and business owners on Broadway released a security plan to cut down on crime. It calls for adding security cameras, putting in more street lighting, and even adopting dress codes. A security expert hired to look at crime on Broadway says party buses also need to be monitored.
"They start from usually, far off places. So 15 to 30 miles out, that gives the opportunity for everybody in the bus to drink unregulated. So, by the time they end up on Broadway, they're already drunk," said Security Intelligence Specialist Corp CEO John Windsor.
The plan calls for security staff at nightclubs to board party buses to make sure nobody is drunk.
Business owners also want to liven up the area with murals, a walk of fame, and history projects.
