The Operations Division of the Times Square Alliance seeks to facilitate a world-class experience for all those who live, work, & visit Times Square. The Alliance Public Safety Department and Sanitation Department help maintain the beauty and vibrancy of the neighborhood year-round.

Public Safety

Times Square Alliance Public Safety Officers (PSOs) patrol the district 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As the eyes and ears of the Alliance, they work with NYPD to keep Times Square safe. They also provide information to visitors and work closely with city partners to maintain quality-of-life throughout the district.


The Alliance's team of 70 Sanitation Associates works tirelessly to keep Times Square clean and beautiful for more than 300,000 daily visitors. From removing stickers on lamp posts to pieces of gum on Duffy Square, to setting up for major events, the Sanitation Department's work is integral to day-to-day life in Times Square.
