Promoting Autism/IDD Awareness and Supporting Families of Children with Special Needs:
The Police Department's Autism/Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Outreach Unit invites families to the third annual Spectacular Kids Night! This event is an opportunity for those with special needs and their families to meet local police officers and Fire & Rescue personnel, network with other attendees, and learn about community resources all in an informal setting! Spectacular Kids Night, an idea formulated by community member Ryan Goldman, is meant to create an opportunity for «introductions and interactions» that lead to more understanding. During MCP's Autism Night Out event this past May, Ryan Goldman received a MCPD Chief's Award for his efforts in partnering with the Department's Autism/IDD Program.
