Residents with special needs family members can have peace of mind during times of crisis thanks to the Glenn Heights Police Department’s (GHPD) new Guardian Program.
The Guardian Program is a voluntary, and free, registry for those who may be unable to communicate basic personal information due to a diagnosed cognitive disorder, or are prone to wander away or run away from guardians, home, or school due to a diagnosed medical disorder. Special needs include Autism, Alzheimer's, dementia, or some other mental/intellectual disability.
Why sign up for the Guardian Program?
When seconds count in an emergency situation, the Guardian Program registry allows first responders to have access to critical information designed to help safely reunite families of registered participants.
We are requesting that parents/guardians of a special needs child or adult voluntarily submit a completed application with all required medical information and photo at the time of registration.
