WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Mayor Scott Avedisian says Motel 6 executives have agreed to appear before the Warwick Board of Public Safety next week to discuss what they are doing to stop criminal activity at the chain’s Warwick site.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1IrGeoL ) that Motel 6 agreed to changes after Warwick police began investigating last month. New measures include police details, filing a daily guest list with the city, raising the minimum check-in age to 21 from 18 and training staff on safety procedures.

The executives are set to meet with Avedisian and Police Chief Col. Stephen McCartney on Tuesday.

McCartney said there have been 75 arrests at the motel over the past year, including drug and prostitution offenses.

Motel 6 did not immediately respond to an early morning email Wednesday.
