Liaison Officers Appointed in Every Rhode Island Police Department

MAPS is encouraged by the recent announcement by Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. Neronha that every police department in the state has now appointed a Hate Crimes and Civil Rights Liaison Officer, as part of his initiative to prioritize civil rights work and protect Rhode Island’s diverse communities from crimes motivated by hate.

MAPS believes similar steps across state and local government and law enforcement in particular will lead to more just and accountable public institutions.
