The Newtown Police Department is participating in the Blue Envelope program, which provides information and guidance to drivers with Autism Spectrum Disorder during their encounters with police.
The program is in compliance with a state law allowing individuals with the disorder a voluntary way to identify themselves to law enforcement and helping to increase awareness by police in these situations.
The blue envelope is designed to hold their driver’s license, registration, insurance identification card, and any other documents they would need during an interaction with police.
The outside of the envelope provides information and ways to enhance communication with police.
If you would like an envelope please stop by, the envelopes are located in the lobby of our department.
