Introducing a new program by the Grand Island Police Department, Take Me Home, for individuals who have trouble communicating, such as those with Autism, Down Syndrome, developmental or cognitive disabilities, and may not be able to effectively identify themselves, their medical needs, or where they live.
The Take Me Home program is a database maintained by the Grand Island Police Department and is only accessible to law enforcement personnel. The system includes a picture, disability, description, and contacts. If a person in the Take Me Home program is encountered alone by a police officer, or is reported missing, the officer can access the database by name or the person’s description to locate their enrollment record. With the information at hand, the officer can appropriately assist the person.
