Project Safeguard

What is the Autism Safety Roster?

The roster is a project in partnership with the community and the Herriman Police Department (HPD). The online roster promotes communication and gives police quick access to important information about a person with Autism such as their name, birthday, physical description, emergency contact information, known triggers and behaviors etc. This roster provides information that is critical for law enforcement prior to an officer’s arrival at a scene and/or prior to contacting an individual with Autism or other mental illnesses.

Goal of the Program

To help insure the safety of an individual with Autism in a crisis situation.

What happens once the person is registered?

Once the person is registered, they will be placed into a database in the HPD’s Record Management System. If you do not reside within the Herriman Police Department jurisdiction, contact your local police department to inquire if they participate in a similar program.

Once the submitted information is verified, it will be placed into the dispatch system. This is where the rostered information will be given to the officers responding on calls or interacting with an individual who has Autism. When possible, an officer trained in Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) will be sent to the scene.

Register Annually

The information must be updated and submitted every year to ensure the information is accurate. If the information is not updated, the file will be marked as “inactive” until current information is submitted.

How to Register

To register, an adult family member or guardian of an individual with Autism, complete the following form.
