Welcome to the Saint John Police Force Autism Registry Program
Keeping Your Loved One Safe!
What is the Autism Registry?
The autism registry is a voluntary program. It is offered free of charge by the Saint John Police Force. The autism registry provides police officers with important information that could lead to improved results in an emergency. Information in the autism registry can include things such as physical description, communication ability, favorite attractions, and triggers for behavioural issues. It is the individual’s choice as to what information they want to share within the autism registry. All information in the autism registry is kept confidentially and only accessible to police officers who are responding to an emergency situation.
Goal of the Autism Registry:
The autism registry’s main goal is safety for people with autism spectrum disorder.
How it works:
Once an individual is registered, their information will be stored in a secure database and only accessed by police officers during an emergency. In the event of an emergency, the police officers will be able to access the information in the autism registry quickly. Easy access to this important information will improve officers’ abilities to respond to emergency situations.
For additional information please refer to the frequently asked questions about the autism registry.
How to register:
First, go to the My Saint John registration page here. Then, create an account profile that includes a username and password which will allow you to login to the Autism Registry. Your My Saint John account is a secure means of allowing only you to access the Registry information about your loved one(s).
Complete the on-line registration process. After submitting the form you will receive a message confirming that your registration is complete. You are encouraged to update the information in the autism registry annually and any time there is a change in the individual’s circumstances (such as contact information or physical appearance).
You can go to the Saint John Police Force central station or call 648-3200 to request a registration form. You can also go to the Rothesay Regional Police Force located at 126 Millennium Drive in Quispamsis or call 847-6300.
