Police Prioritize Autism Training

Author: Carrie Gutowski

In an article published on April 3, 2017 by This Week Community News, Carrie Gutowski is featured as a co-developer and presenter for a training series intended to educate police officers on behaviors commonly associated with autism-spectrum disorder. The initiative comes after a recent incident in which an autistic individual was thought to be exhibiting traits of threatening behavior and criminal misconduct. The Central Ohio Risk Management Association (CORMA) will offer the autism-awareness training program for police agencies on June 14, said Gutowski. The program will include video and interactive sessions and will be offered independently of CORMA for non-member agencies or those unavailable for the June session. For the full article, click here.
