Autism Society Training
Autism Society Training
We had a great day of in-service training yesterday. The South Carolina Autism Society came to help us better prepare to respond to incidents involving persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders. By the end of the month, all of our deputies will have attended the training.

Here at the Sheriff's Office we are committed to providing the best services possible to our citizens. Education is a big part of that commitment.

Did you know that we can enter alerts into our Records Management System that will notify first-responders dispatched to your residence that a person with special needs may live there. Having important information prior to arriving on scene can often make a big difference in the outcome of a situation. If you or someone you know would like to be added to the alert listing, please contact: Community Services Deputy Bill Murphy. 803-313-2148 or bmurphy@lacoso.net.

Deputy Murphy can also provide Autism Identification Kits from the Autism Society. These kits include identifying stickers for homes and vehicles and record keeping materials that can be provided to first responders in the event that a special needs person becomes missing.
