Police debut awareness stickers
Bloomington Police have begun supplying emergency responder alert stickers. The stickers inform first responders if a person in a residence or vehicle has dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, special needs or is deaf or hard of hearing. Feedback about the new resource has been overwhelmingly positive on BPD’s Twitter account.
”Having this type of information when responding to a call means we can provide better service to residents,” Police Chief Jeff Potts said. “These stickers help first responders—including BPD, firefighters and emergency medical technicians—have a greater positive impact in providing services to those in need.”
Bloomington Public Health staff have been partnering with BPD to get these stickers out into the community where they are needed. If you would like to pick up a sticker, visit the Bloomington Police Department lobby at 1800 West Old Shakopee Road.
