Crime Awareness Update

Three individuals have been apprehended and charged with committing three separate crimes (two robberies and a larceny) reported to the community by DPS in the last three weeks.  Images from video surveillance cameras helped identify the suspects. Brown’s Department of Public Safety worked in close collaboration with the Providence Police Department to solve these crimes.

As a reminder, many crimes of opportunity occur by suspects taking advantage of individuals distracted by texting or talking on their cell phones.  DPS encourages all members of the community to continue to be vigilant and proactive in maximizing their personal safety.  If you must use your cell phone, be aware of your surroundings!  Please report any suspicious behavior by person(s) or vehicle(s) to DPS at 401-863-3322.  Emergency reporting, please call 401-863-4111.
