Autism Registry for Residents of City of Kawartha Lakes

The information below is from Autism Ontario Peterborough Chapter regarding an Autism Registry program in the City of Kawartha Lakes:

Kawartha Lakes Police Services - Autism Registry

Depending on where you live in the City of Kawartha Lakes, you would take your completed form (with photo attached) to either the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Services office at 6 Victoria Avenue N, Lindsay or the O.P.P Office at 21 Angeline Street, N in Lindsay.

This amazing opportunity is available to ANYONE on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, regardless of age.  The safety factor alone is worth it, and the Police services are even going to make an annual phone call reminder each year, in case you need to update the photo or information.
