Sacramento hospitality industry invited to attend upcoming ‘Safe Night Out’ training

The City of Sacramento Office of Nighttime Economy is partnering with local nonprofit crisis intervention center WEAVE to offer “Safe Night Out” training for hospitality businesses from 3 to 5 p.m. on April 4 and 19.

The training will be held at 300 Richards Blvd., room 221.

Safe Night Out is a WEAVE prevention program that offers a series of training classes for hospitality staff on how to recognize warning signs of sexual and domestic violence and how to respond to keep establishments and patrons safe.

This free, two-hour training and certification program educates bar and restaurant staff on sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, and bystander intervention.

“This program plays a pivotal role in our ongoing efforts to ensure safe, vibrant, and well managed nightlife Sacramento,” said the City’s Nighttime Economy Manager Tina Lee-Vogt. “Nightlife is a vital part of the city’s economy, culture, and identity.”

There will be additional Safe Night Out trainings on different topics throughout the year.

The City also hosts quarterly training to provide information to help nighttime businesses operate safely. Training and information are provided by Code Compliance, Sacramento Police and Sacramento Fire staff.
