Children with Autism and Intellectual Impairments

The Bristol Police Department would like your assistance with the creation of a program which will identify the homes of children with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities.

This program is being implemented to improve the safety of your children if or when they interact with the police. The first course of action is to identify where these children reside.

The addresses will be shared with the police department in order to provide our officers with important pre-arrival information should a call for service be facilitated to your residence. This program would help the officers to minimize the possibility of creating distress for the children and create a positive interaction with the police.
