Compliments or Complaints

The Providence College Office of Safety and Security strives to develop and maintain positive relationships with all members of the Providence College Community and endeavors to provide the highest quality of service.

Our goal is to ensure that the staff of this office is guided by principles so every individual they come in contact with be treated fairly and with dignity.

A citizen complaint, and its subsequent investigation, causes the Director to examine services that are provided to the Providence College community and to make improvements when needed.

Each complaint will be accepted in a courteous and professional manner.  All complaints will be properly documented and investigated in a timely fashion with appropriate follow up. Anonymous complaints, while accepted will limit our ability to adequately resolve the issue without corroborating information.
