The Elmhurst Police Department is proud to offer a voluntary Special Needs Registry program. The program is intended to assist first responders during in-person contact with members of the community who have disabilities such as, but not limited to, Alzheimer's, Autism, Schizophrenia, Dementia, or any other mental/developmental concerns. The goal of this program is to give emergency personnel quick access to critical information about a registered individual in the event they are unable to effectively communicate their needs, may go missing, or found and unable to provide information. All information within the registry is confidential and used to support community caretaking efforts and is not shared with others. Residents may register by requesting a registration form from the Elmhurst Police Station or accessing the form online at https://www.elmhurst.org/DocumentCenter/View/17260/specialneedsregistry.
