Bishop Police Department Honors Autism Awareness Month
As many know, April is Autism Awareness month. Currently 1 out of 54 children have Autism and fall somewhere on the spectrum. In honor of those children with Autism and the heroic parents, care providers, and educators who work with these children every day, the Bishop Police Department will be wearing shoulder patches to show support and awareness to those with Autism and those effected by it. In addition, the Bishop Police Officer’s Association will have patches for sale at the department for $10.00 per patch. All proceeds from the sale of the patches will be donated locally to assist with programs designed for those with special needs.
“The idea was brought to me by the POA. As a department we want to do our part to bring awareness and show support for our special needs community members.”
