The Rhode Island coastline was hardest hit with high winds and power outages. That’s why Gov. Gina Raimondo decided to check-in with the town managers of South Kingstown and Narragansett, as Rhode Island Public Radio’s Ambar Espinoza reports.
The Department of Environmental Management wants the public to have a role in shaping the state’s wildlife conservation efforts. The DEM will hold the first of four public meetings tonight to discuss the state's wildlife action plan.
South Kingstown is the 27th safest community in the nation, according to data from the national organization Neighborhood Scout.
It reports the total number of violent and property crimes per 1,000 residents in towns of 25,000 residents or more. Despite being the state's largest town and the home of the University of Rhode Island, South Kingstown was the only Rhode Island town ranked in the top 100. South Kingstown Police Chief Vincent Vespia said the town's high ranking is due to more than just the police.
