2014 Community Survey

Join us in congratulating DPS Sergeant Elayna Boucher in her recent state recognition as one of RI's highest ranking women among Rhode Island's Police Departments! Sgt. Boucher was one of several women in RI law enforcement that were honored at the March 6th International Women's Day ceremony at the RI State House. Following the ceremony, the honorees were invited onto the Senate floor for the reading of a Senate Resolution in honor of International Women's Day and the day's honorees. Congratulations Sergeant Boucher - well deserved!
