In December of 2012, the Kawartha Lakes Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police and the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service, in partnership with the Kawartha Lakes Autism Support Group http://www.kawarthalakesautismsupport.com/ launched the inception of an Autism Registry available to residents within the City of Kawartha Lakes.
The Autism Registry is a voluntary repository of personal information submitted to City of Kawartha Lakes Ontario Provincial Police or the Kawartha Lakes Police Service to better facilitate communication and interaction between police and our community.
The online registry promotes communication by providing quick access to critical information about a registered person with autism in a police emergency. It captures information such as a full description, routine/favorite attractions, communication techniques, any special needs, as well as emergency contact information.
For families who may be looking for additional community support, representatives from the Ontario Provincial Police, the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service and the Kawartha Lakes Autism Awareness group will be hosting a community information presentation on Wednesday November 26th 2014 at 7pm at the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service situated at 6 Victoria Avenue North in Lindsay.
All residents within the City of Kawartha Lakes are welcome.
