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.

The voluntary registration process includes completing a Special Needs Registry Form and submitting a photograph.  The information will be kept on file and remain confidential within the police department to be accessed in the event of an emergency.


  1. Reside in the City of Carlyle
  2. Open to any individual with a medical condition or physical and/or mental disability which substantially limits one or more major life activities.
  3. Parents and/or caregivers may enroll a person of any age.
  4. Adults with special needs may enroll themselves.

Again, all information provided will remain strictly confidential.  Thank you for helping us assist the Special Needs citizens in our community.
