CCPD Launches 'Disability Sticker' Program
December 9, 2021
The Culver City Police Department this week started offering free “disability stickers,” which will help law enforcement personnel in interactions with people with disabilities.
The disabilities sticker program was adopted as another tool to help police officers when interacting with those with physical or developmental disabilities, said CCPD.
The stickers, which are available for free to the public, are designed to be placed on or near the front doors of homes or on car windows. Requests and mounting of these stickers are on a strictly voluntary basis, said CCPD.
The stickers will “alert officers that a person inside the home or vehicle may have disabilities and instructions may not be easily understood,” said CCPD, adding that its officers already receive training on how to interact with people who have disabilities.
“The goal of the sticker program is to assist our department in serving members of our community with disabilities,” said CCPD in a statement.
Stickers may be obtained at the Culver City Police Department lobby. For further information please contact Sergeant Edward Baskaron at (310) 253-6316 or by email at Edward.Baskaron@culvercity.org.
