The City of Doral Police Department is proud to announce its latest initiative intended for the betterment of the communication between first responders and individuals with special needs such as autism or any disability that affects their communication.
In order for the program to efficiently work, we would need to collect addresses and some basic information for individuals with special needs who live in our city. Our officers will be able to access this vital information in the event of any emergency or call for service at the individual's home. This will benefit families and officers by reducing the possibility of misunderstandings or unnecessary stress for children and adults with disabilities when they come in contact with first responders such as police and fire rescue.
Participating in this registry is strictly voluntary, and all information will be kept confidential. You must live within the Doral city limits in order to register.
If you have a child or loved one at home with a disability that affects their method of communication and/or ability to understand and follow verbal instructions, I urge you to register for this program and provide our officers with information that can help us, help you keep your family safe.
