Special Needs Home Alert Program

The police department prides itself on safe, calm, and efficient resolutions of calls for service. For some, this may entail a call with someone with special needs, or a person considered “at-risk”. 

By providing information about yourself, or a loved one with special needs, officers arriving on scene will be better equipped to handle the situation.

Persons with physical handicaps, therapy dogs, mental illness, or other needs may find this program helpful should the need arise for police assistance.

Examples of information requested may include: diagnosed illness, equipment required, precautions for emergency personnel, emergency contact information, physical description of person with special needs, favorite places this person may be found.

Be assured, this information is for emergency personnel only.

Please contact the Community Relations Unit at communityrelations@vbg.org if you are interested in creating an alert for yourself or a loved one.
