​Non-Biased Policing Policy

​​​​​​​​​At Providence College, bias-based profiling undermines legitimate campus safety efforts and fosters distrust among the community. The purposes of the Non-Biased Policing Policy are to reaffirm the Department of Public Safety's commitment to unbiased policing in all interactions with members of the College community, guests, and visitors, and to engender public confidence and trust by ensuring that fair and equitable procedures are followed in day-to-day operations.
