Occupants with Autism Program

To enhance emergency responses, the Miami-Dade Police Department has launched the Occupant with Autism program. This initiative provides free decals to community members to be placed on either vehicles or homes. The visual indicator aids police officers in applying specialized autism training during incidents involving individuals who may not readily respond to verbal commands.

Participation is voluntary, and residents can register without displaying the decal. MDPD encourages community involvement to foster understanding and awareness, reinforcing their commitment to safeguarding all residents, including those with autism.
