Autism Awareness Program
The Mount Laurel Police Department is now offering Autism Awareness Identification stickers. Residents can display a Mount Laurel Police Department Autism Awareness sticker on their car or home to alert responding officers and emergency personnel that an Autistic person may be present. Research shows that persons with autism and other developmental disabilities are more likely to encounter law enforcement than the general population. The actions or reactions by people with autism can be misinterpreted by first responders.
The badge will represent the complexity of the Autism spectrum and our dedication to providing advanced support to the Autism community. Our officers have already been trained in basic Autism Awareness and this badge will only help responding officers quickly identify signs and symptoms. Please help us to better serve our community.
Contact the Mount Laurel Police Department Community Relations Bureau to receive your Autism Awareness Identification Sticker.
