Safewalk Service is up and running (er, walking) for the semester! Request Line: (401) 863-1079
Service Hours: Academic year only, Sunday through Thursday, 9pm-2:15am
What is SAFEWALK? Safewalk was formed at DPS in 1988 in response to women's safety concerns on campus. Over time, we have come to realize that safety is an important issue for all members of the community - men and women, students, staff, and faculty.
Safewalk is a DPS program staffed by student employees who provide point-to-point walking escorts for their fellow community members.
Each two-person team patrols the campus, along the Brown safeRIDE shuttle route, acting as additional "eyes and ears" for community safety. SW stations a team at the Rockefeller Library and the CIT, to accommodate those who study late. The teams can be identified by their distinctive Safewalk vests with reflective strips, and photo IDs. Each SW team is equipped with a two-way portable radio to communicate to DPS dispatch at anytime. If you see a Safewalk team on campus, feel free to ask them to walk with you if you are feeling unsafe.
Earn Bear Tips Coins by getting a walk with us! A Bear Tip coin is worth $1 at the Blue Room or at the Brown Bookstore.
