We’re helping to keep Austin safe for nightlife as a positive, inclusive, non-violent, non-confrontational, de-escalation, distraction, and protection squad.
Rainbow Patrol began in response to an assault that happened in downtown Austin in January, 2019. On Saturday nights and for occasional special events, our volunteer group creates a positive, loud and bright presence, escorting people to safety while keeping an eye out for those who need “safety in numbers” and situations that need professional intervention. The Austin Police Department is aware of our effort and grateful for more eyes and ears.
We welcome more volunteers! Jump to Volunteer Information for more details and to sign up!
