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

To reach the advocate for North Providence call:

(401) 231-4533 ext. 145 or email

To reach the advocate for Johnston or Cranston call:

(401)477-5040 (Cranston), (401)757-3139 (Johnston) or


Law Enforcement Advocacy
