Autism and Law Enforcement

Police Office

Dennis Debbaudt, father of an individual with autism and leading global voice on autism training for law enforcement and emergency responders, has developed a tip sheet for law enforcement to help them understand how to respond when a situations involves an individual with autism. These tips include such things as: talk calmly and softly, model behavior you want the person to display and don’t interpret the persons failure to respond as a lack of cooperation or reason to increase force.

With the increased awareness about autism, it is very important for law enforcement to know how to respond in these situations. If you’re interested in having Mr. Debbaudt speak in your community and to access more wonderful resources, visit his website.
