Special Needs Registry

The Carlyle Police Department would like to better serve the Autistic/Special Needs community. To further assist this community, we are creating a Special Needs Registry. The Special Needs Registry is a completely voluntary program and is for any individual, of any age, who has a medical condition, or physical or mental disability which would require special assistance in an emergency. Emergencies may include missing persons, medical emergencies, crisis situation, behavioral episode, Alzheimer’s, dementia and/or other interactions where police may be called.
