Official Press Release

July 20, 2016

The Autism Society of Florida strives everyday to protect and enhance the lives of those living with autism and all who care for them – including police officers and other first responders. This is why we are dedicated to training and supporting our police force to be better able to work with and protect every person with autism through our ongoing programs of support and education.

The Autism Society of Florida is acutely conscious of, and actively responding to, the urgent need to continue these autism trainings so that our law enforcement officers can properly respond to the growing numbers of individuals now diagnosed with Autism Spectrum disorder. The Autism Society of Florida has made great strides over the past decade to protect, and insure the proper treatment of our loved ones. It is vital that every community has access to these trainings, not just for the protection of the individuals with autism and their families, but also for the protection of the officers who respond. The Autism Society is highly committed to providing education and assistance to law enforcement officers so that events like the one that happened here in North Miami will become much less frequent.

The Autism Society of Florida is currently partnered with other local organizations and agencies to propose legislation related to this matter. We ask for your support and patience through this process.
