Department of Public Safety

Transaction Safe Space

We offer a safe space for secure transactions organized online.

The Brown University Department of Public Safety welcomes Brown students and staff to utilize the front lobby of the police station at 75 Charlesfield Street for processing exchanges from online transactions. There is a phone in the lobby that auto-dials to the DPS Communications Center in case of an emergency.

“ If the sale is legitimate, why would anyone not agree to meet at a police station lobby to complete the sale?  Consider our location as a safe alternative. ”
