Riverside Police launch program to locate special needs missing persons

The registry aims to assist law enforcement and emergency services in locating residents as quickly and safely as possible.

The program is designed to help police locate a lost or displaced loved one with special needs quickly and efficiently. Residents with Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Down syndrome are examples of those who might benefit from the registry.

The registry contains information such as emergency contact information, physical descriptions, photographs, communication abilities, routines, behaviors, and more.
