North Lamar ISD Police Department launched its new safety sticker program Monday afternoon to help “improve safety for first responders and those with special needs.”
According to the district’s police department, the stickers will alert public safety authorities the person or persons in the vehicle, business or residential home may have a physical or mental disability.
“The program aims to improve safety for first responders, and those with special needs may not be able to respond to verbal commands,” NLISD PD posted on social media.
According to the organization, the program was created by North Lamar Student Crime Stoppers’ program, “to help bridge a gap between police officers, firefighters, emergency medical services, and the community with special needs.”
Stickers are available to the public for free – while supplies last. For more information or to request a sticker, contact NLISD PD Chief Mike Boaz at 903-737-2011 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
