In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community. As a result, Chief Anthony P. Falco of the Hoboken Police Department is announcing an update to our website which includes an Autism Emergency Contact Form that may be printed, filled out and dropped off at Police Headquarters. This form is designed to give the Hoboken Police Department some critical information about the City of Hoboken’s Autistic citizens and will also aid the Department in efficiently responding to calls for service with them. The form can be found on the following website, “Licensing, Permits and Forms” page which can be found in the “Citizen Resources” menu.
