The Department of Public Safety, Crime Prevention Unit provides free Residential Security Vulnerability Assessments for Brown students that live off-campus.
This program proposes to:
- Reduce off-campus risks and hazards by providing students and home-owners with information and strategies that enhance personal safety and home security. Recommendations are not foolproof but will certainly maximize residential safety.
- Improve the quality of life for students and neighboring communities.
- Develop residential environments where crime cannot flourish.
A check-list to assist our Crime Prevention personnel has been developed with CPTED (Crime Prevention through Environmental Design) principles in mind. The Officer(s), accompanied by the resident/owner, will conduct a comprehensive tour and assessment of the residence and furnish a security recommendation report within 10-days of the assessment.
Residential Security Vulnerability Assessments can be requested by email. Upon receiving a written request by e-mail, the Brown Crime Prevention Unit will schedule a vulnerability assessment with any Brown student or staff member living within the jurisdiction of Brown DPS:
HOPE STREET - Olney Street to Wickenden Street
WICKENDEN STREET - Hope Street to South Main Street
SOUTH MAIN STREET - Wickenden Street to Olney Street
OLNEY STREET - South Main Street to Hope Stree
