Montclair Police Department Conducting Outreach Effort For Autism Awareness Month

The Montclair Police Department, in honor of National Autism Month, wants you to come out and register your loved ones that may have any sort of special needs. By doing this, officers in the field will have valuable information regarding your loved one if they were to ever go missing.

Montclair Police will be collecting donations to be given to a local charity/program that benefits those with Autism. MPD Autism Awareness patches will be given to any monetary donation of $10 or more.

There will be two separate days to register in person.

For more information, contact Ofc. Paul Rusiniak of the Community Service Unit at 973-509-4776 or email at
