The Indianapolis Metropolitian Police Department and the Marion County Sheriff are committed to becoming Autism-accredited agencies. The Officers and Deputies will go through trainings along with being equiped with sensory items and nonverbal books to aide interactions with those on the spectrum.
"I created the Indy Autism Project with the goal of creating a city that leads with kindness and sees the strengths in our differences. People on the spectrum deserve a world that works for them and allows them to achieve their personal goals. Great leaps forward come from those who see the world differently. Indy is ready to embrace our neurodiverse community for who they are."
Mother of Dylan, 3 years old
We are always looking for feedback from people on the spectrum — and those who love them — on ways we can improve our city.
