Family Service of Rhode Island - Police Liasons
Family Service of Rhode Island (FSRI) partners with the Rhode Island State Police, the Providence Police, and the East Providence Police to help victims of crime address stress, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms of trauma.
This work often includes "police ride-alongs," going on patrol with the police to prevent crimes from happening and to immediately respond to the needs of victims.
FSRI staff follow up with victims to ensure access to counseling and emergency food and clothing, and to assist in navigating the criminal justice system.
