HCAS Announces an Expansion of Partnership with the Howard County Police Department!


The Howard County Police Department (HCPD) will partner with the Howard County Autism Society (HCAS) to provide entry level recruits first-hand experience with autism as they interact with children, adults, and families affected by the developmental disorder.

Organized by Academy Class 40, recruits will volunteer at upcoming social events hosted by HCAS, and will assist in fundraising efforts for the annual Pieces of the Puzzle Autism Gala to be held on April 30th. Recruits will be able to engage with self-advocates and families with autism in positive and non-threatening environments.
