What is Safewalk? 

Safewalk was formed by 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 - students, staff, and faculty of all genders.  

Safewalk is a DPS program staffed by student employees who provide point-to-point walking escorts  free  of  charge) 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.  The  teams can be identified by their distinctive Safewalk vests with  reflective strips. 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!

Safewalkers are Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) under the Clery Act. CSAs are required to report to the Department of Public Safety allegations of Clery Act crimes that the CSA receives. If a victim does not want the report to go any further than the CSA, the CSA is still required to submit the report for statistical purposes, but it can be submitted without identifying the victim.
