Autism Registry FAQ

What is the Autism Registry?

The Registry for individuals with Autism is a Windsor Police Services project in partnership with Autism Services Inc. The online registry promotes communication and gives police quick access to critical information about a registered person with autism in a police emergency by capturing information such as a full description, routine/favourite attractions, communication and other special needs as well as emergency contact information.


Who has access to my child's profile?

Windsor Police Services personnel who require this information in the performance of their duties will have access to the information. There are strict regulations with respect to accessing and disseminating information. There is a Police Information Portal (P.I.P.) that is shared by all police agencies. The consent of the individual involved, or their parent/guardian, is required before any information is shared among police agencies.


How will this registry help if my child/dependent adult goes missing?

If the individual goes missing and is reported by the parent/guardian, information about his/her physical appearance, the most likely places where he/she would go to, as well as triggers stimulants, and de-escalation techniques will be provided to every police officer in the area to look for the missing person.


Residents Outside of Windsor
