To the Parent or Guardian: The Mission of Project Guardian is to develop partnerships between Law Enforcement Officers, community agencies, and members of our community with autism. This program trains officers on the fundamentals of autism and how to better respond to calls for service involving individuals with autism, and establishes a voluntary database of information provided by families to assist officers prior to arrival on a call for service. Project Guardian is wholly voluntary, and you may request withdrawal at any time.
