The University Park Police Department has created a registry for individuals with Autism or other disabilities in an effort to give police access to critical information in the event of an emergency. The registry can provide police with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, known routines, favorite attractions or special needs of an individual. This information can be critical for individuals with an Autism Disorder or other disabilities such as: Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Down syndrome or any other endangered individuals.
The information you provide can greatly assist police officers when time is essential in communicating and dealing with an emergency situation involving a person with a disability. The registration form asks for valuable information that police may need when helping individuals with a disability. We ask that all questions be filled out completely and a current photograph be provided. If you are unable to supply a photograph, we can take one for you. The information you provide is confidential and will only be used by law enforcement and/or medical professionals to care for your loved one.
You can fill out an online version of the Special Needs Registry Form.
