ROSS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – Ross Township police have begun using a new database to help provide better services to people with autism and other special needs.
The database will help police officers by providing information when they come across an individual who may not have given them their name, address or phone number or that of family members.
Police say one example of how this can be helpful is when a person is missing and needs help reuniting with their family.
The Autism Database promotes communication between police and residents and allows individuals to enter information into the system such as personal descriptions, places of interest and other needs, as well as information emergency contact information.
