Law Enforcement Advocacy

Holding Hands

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


To reach the advocate for:

Cranston call:  (401) 345-7034 or email

North Providence or Johnston call:

No. Prov: (401) 231-4533 ext. 1145 

Johnston: (401) 757-3139

or email

Coventry, East Greenwich or West Greenwich


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.
