I wanted to make sure to remind everybody that our sixth annual MCPD Autism/IDD Night Out will be held Friday September 14th. The flyer is attached. I am clearly a bit biased as the coordinator of the MCPD Autism/IDD Outreach Unit, but this is one of the best events of the entire year in Montgomery County. The goal of our unit is to provide a layered approach to Autism/IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities) awareness and safety through Education, Outreach, Follow Up, EMPOWERMENT, and Response. We work on those elements all year but on September 14th we go all out! The event is designed to bring law enforcement, first responders, the Autism/IDD community together to learn from each other. This event is welcome to all. The goal is to create "introductions and interactions". This event has gone from just a safety resource fair to so much more. It has turned into an evening of reunion, new friendships, meaningful connections and fun. We will have all the cool "stuff" to see, police cars, fire trucks, ambulance, rescue boats, rescue dogs, therapy and service dogs and our MCPD police k-9. We have food and drinks, popcorn, cotton candy and much more! We want to show those in the Autism/IDD community that "YOU ARE NOT ALONE", we are educated and aware in Montgomery County. I am so proud of our officers and all they do to provide a show of force in support. This evening brings all of us together. To be honest, it's one of my favorite days of the year. I would love to meet and greet everybody who attends. I will try my best. If I can't do that, please come on out and introduce yourself to the other officers. Please visit our MCPD Autism/IDD Outreach table for wandering and general safety resources and materials. Introduce your child or loved ones to our officers and other first responders, share with them, it makes us all better for the interaction. Please also look for Officer Tara Bond, the co-coordinator of the program. This year we really want to get the word out to our military families who may be impacted by a loved one who has Autism/IDD. Please do me a favor and pass this on to military families you know. I have reached out to local military support organizations to make them aware of this event and our program. This is a "rain or shine" event. Murphy's Law is always in effect for this special night. Storms have popped up three times for this event. Don't Worry! We just go inside and it all works out. Thank you. Officer Laurie Reyes MCPD Autism/IDD Outreach
