The Orange City Police Department is committed to the safety of all of our residents. The more information officers have
when responding to calls for service, the better they are able to meet our residents’ needs.

The goal of the Orange City Police Department Autism Awareness Program is to alert Orange City Police Officers and
other Emergency Responders that there is a person(s) with autism in a home or vehicle. Emergency responders will then
utilize their training and experience to assist with interacting with an autistic person that may not speak, respond to or
comply with verbal commands, may hide, wander off, or may have no awareness of danger.

The police department is providing decals free of charge to anyone within Orange City jurisdiction. Please place the decal near the front door of your home or in the rear window, preferably bottom left, of your vehicle so law enforcement officers and emergency responders can be aware there may be a resident or vehicle occupant with autism.

If you would like to register but do not want to affix the decal to your home or vehicle, simply fill this form out and request zero decals. Our agency will still flag your address in our dispatch system, so arriving emergency responders will be aware that a person with autism resides at the registered address.
