Release according to the Gloucester Township Police Department.
On Friday, April 2 at 10 a.m. the Gloucester Township Police Department (GTPD) will be conducting a press conference and dedication of a Paverart Walkway to recognize Autism Awareness Day.
In 2015, the GTPD had created a registry for individuals with autism or disabilities in efforts to give police quick access in an emergency to critical information about a
person who is registered. The registry can provide police with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, known routines, favorite attractions or special needs of an individual with autism disorder or other disabilities such as: Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Down Syndrome or any other endangered individuals. This information can greatly assist police officers when time is essential in communicating and dealing with an
emergency situation involving a person with autism disorder as well as other disabilities.
The registration form asks for valuable information that police may need when helping individuals with autism disorder or any other disability. The information people provide is confidential and will only be used by law enforcement.
