Pensacola Police Department's Take Me Home Program

The Take Me Home system is a database developed by the Pensacola PD of persons who may need special assistance if they are alone. The system includes a current digital picture, demographic information and caregiver contacts. If a person in the Take Me Home system is encountered by a Pensacola Police Officer, the officer can query the Take Me Home system by name or by the person's description to locate the person's Take Me Home enrollment record. With the information at hand the officer can appropriately assist the person.

The Take Me Home system is designed for departments that utilize the onboard patrol vehicle computer technology. Over-the-air dispatching is minimized. Caregivers can be contacted by phone and provide key information directly to the first responder. Take Me Home is, of course, voluntary for citizens that participate.

The Take Me Home system is available to ALL law enforcement and public safety agencies free of charge!!!

Crisis Prevention Institute's Autism in the Workplace Training

The Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) was established in 1980 for human service professionals to address the need for training in safe, respectful, noninvasive methods for managing disruptive and assaultive behavior that are compatible with staff's duty to provide the best possible care. CPI developed a compelling seminar to raise autism awareness and dispel myths about autism. It is designed to help professionals-those who have occasional workplace encounters with people on the autism spectrum-interact safely, effectively, and respectfully. This seminar provides important information that helps minimize risks and prepares staff for workplace contact with individuals on the autism spectrum.

Pennsylvania Premise Alert - Communication Boards

Autism Communication Board

Various communication barriers make it difficult or even impossible for many individuals to ask for help. Police officers, EMTs, and other emergency professionals are often placed in the difficult position of having to gather information from these people.

Our nonverbal communication boards assist professionals and people who cannot make their circumstances clear due to that they speak another language or have a medical condition such as autism, Alzheimer's syndrome, stroke, traumatic brain injury, unfamiliar or impaired speech, or other difficulties.

These full color icons are easily understood. Text is in English and Spanish. The format is used internationally in special education programs for most ages and functional levels.
