Special Needs Information Program

About the Program

Parents of autistic children and families of loved ones living with mental health or medical disabilities are invited to join the Lebanon Police Department’s new Special Needs Information Program (SNIP), a program to help emergency responders identify and respond to vulnerable residents with special needs.

The program is intended to aid police dispatchers and officers in their response to calls for assistance that may involve individuals with mental health or medical disabilities. This may include locating a missing person, medical emergency, crisis situation, behavioral episode, or other interactions. The program is an expansion of an existing database that identifies community members who have Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

How It Works

The voluntary registration process includes completing the SNIP registration form below, which includes uploading a photograph. This information will then be kept on file and remain confidential within the police department and will be accessed by first responders in the event of an emergency.
