PHPD Launches Autism Disorder / At-Risk Individual Registration Program in recognition of Autism Awareness Month 2016

The Pine Hill Police Department has created a registry for individuals with Autism or disabilities in efforts to give officers quick access in an emergency to critical information about an at-risk person who is registered. The registry can provide officers 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 is three pages and asks for valuable information that the police officer may need when helping at-risk individuals. We ask that all questions be filled out completely and a current photograph be provided.  If you are unable to supply a photograph, the Pine Hill Police Department can take one for you.  The information you provide is confidential and will only be used by our police officers.

 If any of the information on the registration changes you are encouraged to inform the police department as soon as possible.  We will look to update the registration yearly to ensure we have the most current information and photographs.

 The form may be accessed on the Pine Hill Police Department website via the At-risk Individual Registration link .  The form is fillable and can be submitted directly from the form via email or it may be submitted at the Police Administration or given to any Pine Hill Police Officer.  Additional information may be obtained by emailing communityrelations@ec2-52-90-234-189.compute-1.amazonaws.com or calling 856-783-1549.
