As a family member or care provider you know better than anyone the struggles that are faced by those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is sometimes difficult to communicate properly with those who have ASD. The "Blue Envelope" was created to help those with ASD and Police Officers in the event of a motor vehicle stop.
The primary goal of the Blue Envelope is to aid drivers with ASD with document organization and to educate them about what to do during a motor vehicle stop. Please review the Blue Envelope and the Emergency Contact Form with those under your care and create a plan customized to their needs. If you need assistance, Lincoln Park Police Department can help you with the plan. The Blue Envelope also helps the Police Officer by identifying those with ASD and guides them on how to better interact with them.
This program is brought to you by the Lincoln Park Police Department, the Morris County Police Chiefs Association (MCPCA), the Morris County Sheriff's Office, and the Morris County Prosecutor's Office.
