Autism Alert

The Western Australia Police Force, in partnership with Autism Western Australia would like to invite you take part in a new initiative. This new community based policing initiative is focusing on building and recognising partnerships between other agencies, members of the public and the police. We want to create and sustain an alert process, to benefit individuals on the Autism Spectrum.

The Alert system will promote communication to all officers, in order to give them quick access to critical information about a person with autism. The information can provide emergency contact details, known routines, favourite locations and attractions, or special needs of the individual.

This information will assist officers in communicating, attending locations or dealing with an emergency involving someone with autism. This information is only available to police officers, and is solely intended to help the individual involved.

If you are interested in participating, or require further information then please complete the attached form and return. 

Curtin University Research Project  

Drianca Naidoo,  a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) student at Curtin University in Western Australia is conducting a research project that explores the decision-making experiences of family members who are legally appointed guardians of individuals with intellectual disability on issues relating to prescription of neuroleptic or anti-psychotic medication and challenging behaviour.

She is looking to speak with people who:

  • Are adults (over the age of 18)
  • Are legally appointed guardians to a family member (who is over the age of 18) with an intellectual disability
  • Have past or current experience with decision-making on anti-psychotic or neuroleptic medication for their family members.

Interviews will be one-on-one, for approximately 45 – 60 minutes in duration, and can be conducted in person, over the telephone, or via skype.

MAC celebrates the ingenuity of our members with an exhibition of works created from the discarded, the broken or the abandoned. MORE INFO HERE.
