Officer R.K.

Having the autistic children present was amazing. As a 21-year police officer, I would not have been able to differentiate the symptoms of autism from disobedience or being under the influence of drugs. I think this experience and knowledge will promote empathy from patrol officers in the future when dealing with families and, hopefully, bridge the gap that existed before the training. The interactive exercises really hit home for being able to understand the autistic thought process.
