MSP Joins Action for Autism Movement
Fri, 02 Apr 2021 16:47:44 EDT


The Michigan State Police (MSP) is the most recent law enforcement agency to join an initiative called ‘Action for Autism,’ which provides training on autism awareness and equips officers with "calming bags" to carry in their patrol vehicles to provide support in stressful situations involving someone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Throughout the month of April, the Autism Alliance of Michigan is providing virtual training to MSP enforcement members. The instruction covers guidance for responding to calls involving persons with special needs and specifically those who wander due to ASD.
