Event description

Description

Persons with autism are estimated to have up to seven times more contacts with law enforcement agencies during their lifetimes. Yet, only 20% of patrol responses related to individuals with autism are related to criminal activity. Individuals with autism frequently confess to crimes they did not commit or make misleading statements in order to please the detective. Their inappropriate responses, such as lack of eye contact, giggling, indifference or lack of remorse can lead to a misinterpretation of guilt. Due to their vulnerability, people with autism are frequently the victims of crime. This training will address these issues and provide strategies to practice, in the event their child or young adult has an encounter with law enforcement.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide childcare at this training.
