Blue Suede Brigade Can Help You Find Your Way!

Clad in recognizable bright blue shirts, the Blue Suede Brigade is the hospitality and safety arm of the Downtown Memphis Commission. These ambassadors help create a friendly and safe Downtown environment.

Brigadiers are trained to provide assistance and information to visitors, workers, residents and businesses throughout Downtown. Brigadiers also serve as the supplemental eyes and ears of the business community and our law enforcement agencies.

Members of the Blue Suede Brigade:

  • Patrol Downtown seven days a week, 10-12 hours a day
  • Provide directions and information about activities, attractions, history, development, business and services
  • Utilize two-way radios to respond to calls from other Brigadiers and to communicate with the Memphis Police Department and Downtown Private Security
  • Work with local service providers to get the homeless community appropriate care and assistance they need

In fact, you can ask them anything ... just don't step on their shoes.
