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 three law enforcement advocates who work in the Coventry, East Greenwich, West Greenwich, North Providence, Johnston, and Cranston police departments.

To reach the advocate for Coventry, West Greenwich, or East Greenwich call: (401)826-8915 or e-mail bdarelius@coventrypd.org.

To reach the advocate for Johnston or Cranston call: (401)477-5040 (Cranston), (401)757-3152 (Johnston) or e-mail atimothy@cranstonpoliceri.com.

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.
