The Guardian Angels have become integrated into the fabric of the community. Since 1979, the non-profit, New York City-based group, has been responsible for creating hundreds of safety patrol chapters throughout the United States and worldwide. Formed by Curtis Sliwa and 12 dedicated volunteers in New York City, the “Magnificent 13” rode the subways to conduct safety patrol. For 37 years, thousands of people have joined the Guardian Angels and created chapters in over 130 cities in 13 countries to protect their communities and improve substantially the quality of life.
