What is the Autism Registry?
The Registry for People with Autism is a South Kingstown Police Department project in partnership with the community. 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/favorite attractions, communication and other special needs as well as emergency contact information. Please call 401-783-3321 for more information.
