FLPD CARES: An Autism Outreach Program
The FLPD Cares Program is an Autism Outreach Program that will allow our officers to better serve those in our community living with Autism. Through this program we hope to maintain a database of Autistic individuals we may interact with in hopes of improving our response. The form below is to be filled out with information about the person with Autism. By clicking “submit”, this form will be sent directly to the FLPD Desk Sergeant who will input the information into our database. The information will be kept confidential and made available only to our patrol officers. This process will allow officers who are responding to an incident involving a person with Autism to appropriately prepare for and handle the situation. Ultimately, through the FLPD Cares Program, we will be improving these interactions for all parties involved.
