Department of Public Safety

The purpose of New England Tech’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) is to promote a safe and secure environment based upon effective relationships and excellence in service to enrich the quality of our students’, employees’ and guests’ experiences while on campus.

NEIT’s Director of Public Safety, Pamela Moffatt-Limoges, has over 30 years of experience in Public Safety. From 1985 until 2008, Pam was a member of the Rhode Island State Police, retiring with the rank of Lieutenant. She then served as the Associate Director of Public Safety at Roger Williams University before joining NEIT as its first Director of Public Safety. Pam oversees our staff of security personnel.

Our main Public Safety Office and Dispatch Center is located just inside the main student entrance (south facing) opposite the Residence Hall at the East Greenwich Campus. Everyone is invited to stop by.
