Vulnerable Person Registry Implemented in Recognition of Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month


In recognition of Autism Awareness Month the Riverside Police Department has implemented a Vulnerable Person Registry program.  The program that is designed to support families caring for loved ones with physical and or mental disabilities who are prone to wandering and or becoming lost.  This includes, but is not limited to persons with Autism, Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, Down Syndrome, brain injuries, and mental illness 

The registration will rapidly provide police with photographs, detailed physical descriptions, approach recommendations, and most importantly emergency contact information to be used in these circumstances. 

 The information will remain confidential at all times and will be released only to police, fire, and/or medical personnel assisting in the identification, safety, and rapid return if a registrant is found, reported missing, or otherwise determined to be at-risk by emergency response personnel. The registration packet can be picked up at the Riverside Police station or found on our website.  Additionally, all officers will receive training in "Autism Education for First Responders."
