The Hopewell Township Police Department has created a registry for community members who are autistic or have another communication disability in efforts to give police quick access to critical information about a person who is registered in an emergency situation, according to information provided by the police department.

This registry will provide officers with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions including a photo, medical concerns, best way to communicate and known stressors/stress reducers.

All questions should filled out completely and a current photograph should be provided; or police, can take a photograph.

The information you provide is confidential and will only be used by law enforcement in an emergency situation, according to the statement.

If any information on the registration changes, inform police as soon as possible.

This program is free to the community.

Download the registration form at www.hopewelltwp.org/197/Police

 

Contact Detective Alexis Mirra at amirra@hopewelltwp.org with any questions.

Completed forms may be handed in at the Police Dispatch window of headquarters, 201 Washington Crossing Pennington Road, Titusville section of Hopewell Township; or emailed to Mirra.

Upon submission of the registration form, a Hopewell Township Police HOPEWELL S.A.F.E. sticker will be provided for display on a vehicle and front entrance door. This sticker will bring awareness to responding officers/EMS during an emergency situation while serving as a de-escalation tool, according to the statement.
