De-escalating Officer Patrol Encounters so everyone can go home safe.
Our mission is to train individuals with IDD how to safely interact with law enforcement. Law enforcement officers also become familiar with the range of behaviors and characteristics associated with autism to promote trust, greater awareness, and create a positive dialogue to ensure the safety of all children when interacting with law enforcement regardless of race, zip code, ability or disability.
