Director, Rhode Island Department of Public Safety

The Rhode Island State Police is a full-service law enforcement agency staffed by men and women committed to serving and protecting our residents, visitors, businesses and institutions. Rhode Island State Troopers have proudly served Rhode Island with honor, bravery, and professionalism since 1925. Each and every one of our sworn and civilian members play an integral part in the success of our agency. Our reputation is a testament to the character of the men and women who have served, and continue to serve within the ranks.

The demands of law enforcement are ever changing and, as such, the direction of this agency is constantly evolving. We take pride in the quality and degree of training our troopers receive and their coordinated efforts with federal, state, and local agencies. It is our promise to maintain a well-trained, knowledgeable, and efficient police force that will be able to adapt to future needs.

On behalf of the men and women of the Rhode Island State Police, thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our agency. We look forward to your continued support and partnership as we work to keep Rhode Island safe. Our organization is committed to building on our past achievements and maintaining the high regard that Rhode Islanders have in their State Police.
