Operation Know Me
The Wilson Police Department with the support of the Arc of Wilson, will be hosting a month of awareness for local law enforcement on dealing with children and adults with developmental disabilities.
As part of the initiative, the
police department seeks to identify addresses and persons with developmental
The identification process also allows families to register their disabled family members with the police department. An up to date photo and demographics information will be maintained in our records system, to provide immediate access to officers. This will be vital in the case where a deaf child becomes missing. All officers will have immediate access to the child’s photo, height, weight, hair color, etc., on the computers in their cars.
The Wilson Police Department respects your right to privacy. The information retained for this project will be used solely for law enforcement purposes. We hope that you will join us in this effort to care for and protect our disabled community.
