The North Miami Beach Police Department’s Autism Decal Program

🌴Hello, my future Miamians!🌴 While many of you know me as a Realtor, diving deep into Miami’s real estate wonders, some might be unaware that I’m also an autism dad. This dual role has given me a unique lens to view my vibrant city, especially about the initiatives that touch my heart.

One such initiative that recently caught my attention is the Autism Decal Program by the North Miami Beach Police Department (NMBPD). This program is designed to assist first responders in identifying and effectively communicating with individuals with autism. The NMBPD is providing these decals free of charge to any resident of North Miami Beach. Families can place them near the front door of their home or in the rear window of their car, ensuring that law enforcement officers are aware of an occupant with autism.

How This Benefits the Autistic Community:

1. Quick Identification: In high-stress situations, first responders can immediately recognize that they’re interacting with someone on the autism spectrum, ensuring a more understanding and patient approach.

2. Enhanced Communication: With knowledge comes empathy. Knowing beforehand allows the police to use effective communication techniques tailored to individuals with autism.

3. Safety: The decal can be a lifesaver, ensuring that individuals with autism are treated with the care and consideration they deserve during emergencies.
