Freehold: Sheriff Shaun Golden is committed to having law enforcement remain in the forefront when it comes to autism awareness. He was pleased to welcome Fran Hines, an autism awareness trainer with the New Jersey Department of Health, and, a parent of an autistic child, to the Monmouth County Police Academy, on April 1, which marks the beginning of Autism Awareness Month. Hines held a training session for the 43 recruits from the 88th Basic Course for Police Officers on autism awareness.
“As we recognize April as Autism Awareness Month, it’s vital to note that the law enforcement community is dedicated to acknowledging this disorder throughout the year,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden, a trustee of the Monmouth Ocean Foundation for Children. “Through attentive training, it’s vital that law enforcement officers become equipped with information and understand the problems associated with autism to effectively assist an individual who needs help.”admin | Filed under: Autism, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden | Tags: Autism, Autism Awareness, Autism Awareness Month, Fran Hines, Monmouth County Police A, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, New Jersey Dept of Health, Press Release, Sheriff Shaun Golden | Comments Off on SHERIFF’S OFFICE IN THE FOREFRONT AS AUTISM AWARNESS MONTH GETS UNDERWAY
