Pennsylvania State Police have released a new resource for individuals with autism.

They can now print out a card that they are then encouraged to show to an officer at the start of any interaction.

The card will alert the law enforcement officer that the individual has autism; and may be non verbal, hyper sensitive to touch and loud noises, and other behaviors.

Officers will then know to respond and interact in a non escalating way.

The card is available to print or download to your phone from the state police website.
