    Block by Block is Investigating Two Ambassadors Caught Behaving Inappropriately While in Uniform

    Block by Block management is investigating two security ambassadors who were caught engaging in intimate and inappropriate acts while in their uniforms and allegedly on the clock this weekend.

    Video clips and photos were submitted to WEHO TIMES by a concerned West Hollywood resident who witnessed the two Block by Block ambassadors being intimate with two female individuals next to Circus of Books, on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and La Jolla Avenue. The footage and images were shot Saturday morning between 12:40 a.m. and 12:52 according to time stamps.

    “I want to bring to your attention a concerning incident I witnessed tonight while leaving Or Bar at 12:30 AM,” said the witness who wishes to remain anonymous. “Two ambassadors were across the street on La Jolla, hanging out with women from nearby bars, possibly OR Bar patrons, and engaging in flirtatious and intimate behavior while in uniform. This situation is particularly alarming considering the recent violent attacks in West Hollywood. Such behavior demonstrates a blatant dereliction of duty, as their attention should be focused and alert to their surroundings, rather than being preoccupied with inappropriate activities.”

    Block by Block ambassadors tend to patrol in pairs at night and are known to go solo during the day. The videos show the two ambassadors leaning into two female individuals and appearing to be engaged in intimate conversation. A blurry photo shows an ambassador lifting his Block by Block polo shirt to show off his abs, while his partner is was recorded kissing a woman on two occasions.

    The resident says he submitted the videos and photos to “ensure the safety and professionalism of our ambassadors and maintain a secure environment for everyone in the community.”

    Danny Rivas, the West Hollywood Community Safety Director who oversees the City’s contract with Block by Block tells WEHO TIMES that if ambassadors engage in anything personal while they are working, that it would be looked into and possible disciplinary actions may be taken. Rivas acknowledged that the footage does not establish if the ambassadors were on break, or if they were off the clock at the time the photos/videos were shot, but he adds that anytime an ambassador is doing any sort of personal business, they are asked to remove their polos or anything that has Block by Block insignia whether it’s a hat or a jacket.

    Rivas forwarded the footage to Block by Block management who say they will conduct an internal investigation.

    “All Block by Block employees are trained on our company work rules and code of conduct,” said Block by Block Regional Vice President – Southwest Region, David Aguilar. “Block by Block thoroughly investigates all complaints, concerns and/or incidents involving ambassadors. Block by Block ambassadors are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. All investigations are handled internally. This incident is being investigated by our on-site management and will be addressed according to our company policy.”

    What a loser to who wrote this. You have no idea if these guys were on break or if these were their partners. You probably got these guys fired because they were keeping the community safe. Yet, this wouldn’t be a story if this were 2 men kissing. Talk about a double standard and sensationized reporting for a NO STORY. You are human garbage.

    Those two guys were doing way more than what the West Hollywood Sheriffs do after midnight on a Saturday night. When was the last time you saw them patrolling the streets late at night?

    The problem is NOT the “Ambassador Program”. the problem is the caliber of employees they are hiring! Are they doing any background investigations or work histories on these “Ambassadors”? Do they have any qualified supervisors that monitor their work? It looks like a window dressing feel good program that is worthless.

    This needs to be put in the context of how the program has performed: This is not the first time Bock by Block staff has been recorded behaving unprofessionally. There was never any public report issued after previous incidents were reported earlier this year. Block by Block was supposed to supervise their ambassadors more closely. Where is the report from the earlier incidents? Block by Block is unable or unwilling to properly supervise their staff. The City is unable or unwilling to manage their vendor. A local network affiliate reported that city officials when asked about this incident referred the… Read more »

    This is not a Block by Block Corp problem. This is a two guys being young and stupid problem. It will be a learning curve for everyone after they get fired.

    Danny Rivas is has no standards if he confines this. Two uniformed representatives of the city (yes they are) should not be making out period. On the clock or on a break, this isn’t junior high. It’s public safety.

    Mikie Friedman,

    Your comment history is accessible when you post. We know it’s you 🙂

    And yes, you did say kickback without any evidence. That is quite the allegation. Care to back it up?

    I’m SO glad we have scooters in West Hollywood btw. They are an asset to this community!

    Bottom line, when you’re sucking face you aren’t observing your surroundings. That that small activity is their only job description they are failing miserably. Fire them both and scrap this costly pathetic excuse for law enforcement. Immediately. West Hollywood residents deserves better. City Council, don’t even try to talk us down. Discontinue this circus.

    BWAHAHAHA They could have easily taken them hoes to Vaseline Alley which is literally right there just a few steps away. Instead they engage right out in the open. Learn from the gays. We’ll teach some stuff about secret sex.

    What were these guys thinking? Where did they find these street walkers? To think B by B could be taken down by two girls scamming on these men in uniform. What will Mayor Sepi Shyne say about this now? What is her defense?
