Killeen Cares Program Event
Thursday, May 4, 2023
This will be an informational event, as the Killeen Police Department wants to remind citizens about their Killeen Cares program, which is offered to community members who live with a mental challenge or Autism who want to make officers aware of their special need or condition.
The Killeen Cares program, which first launched in May of 2022, provides decals to those who qualify and lets officers know that someone they are approaching may be enrolled in the program, so they can respond to a call using a different set of training skills. Officers will use their crisis intervention training to assist in recognizing behaviors that are associated with mental illness, Autism or those in crisis.
Those interested can contact Sgt. Mathews at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, citizens can visit the City’s webpage at www.killeentexas.gov/KilleenCares.
