Meet and greet police officers, share information and find resources.
Brooklyn Park kids and adults who have autism, caregivers and family members are invited to this open house.
You can help police officers understand the needs of people with autism. You will meet and greet local police officers and gain an unique perspective on how the Brooklyn Park Police Department is learning to interact with people who have autism.
We encourage two-way sharing of information so we can help to keep those with autism safer in the community.
We will provide educational resources from organizations around the metro area that assist people with autism.
Come be part of this fun and informative event!
