The Registry for People with Autism is a South Kingstown Police Department project in partnership with the community. The online registry promotes communication and gives police quick access to critical information about a registered person with autism. The Registry can provide police with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, known routines, favorite attractions or special needs of the individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This information can assist officers in communicating with, attending a residence of or dealing with an emergency involving an individual with ASD.
Goal of the Program
The goal of the program is to give police quick access to critical information about a registered individual with ASD in the community in an emergency situation.
Annual registration is required to keep your form active. It is the responsibility of the person with autism or the guardian to resubmit the form. It is recommended that you resubmit on the registrant’s birthday to make it easier to remember.
