Law Enforcement Advocacy

At the Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center, we understand that it is difficult contacting law enforcement with questions regarding domestic violence and sexual assault, even in times of crisis. That is why we have two law enforcement advocates who work in the Coventry, East Greenwich, West Greenwich, Johnston and Cranston police departments.

To reach the advocate for Coventry, West Greenwich, or East Greenwich call: (401)826-8915 or e-mail police vehicles with purple ribbons
To reach the advocate for Johnston or Cranston call: (401)477-5040 (Cranston), (401)757-3152 (Johnston) or e-mail
To reach the advocate for North Providence call: (401) 231-4533 or email


Law Enforcement Advocates are not police officers, but advocates employed by non profit agencies. These phone numbers are not emergency numbers; if it is an emergency please call 911.
