A free, voluntary, and confidential database that is offered, managed, and maintained by the Harris County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) for Harris County residents in the unincorporated areas of the county patrolled by the HCSO.
Deputies often do not know if individuals they encounter have ASD. Information is key in helping deputies respond safely and effectively. Although all deputies in the HCSO receive training on ASD, it is helpful having personal information on the person with ASD they are interacting with, e.g., triggers to avoid, behaviors to expect, communication tips, etc.
Information is also obtained on family members and caregivers in case a deputy needs to contact them.
