Project Guardian for Residents on the Autism Spectrum
The Harris County Sheriff's Office is launching Project Guardian to improve the agency’s interactions with residents on the autism spectrum.
The innovative program engages families with loved ones with autism and provides deputies with critical information about the person with autism, including any special needs should they encounter them when responding to a call for service.
“We continuously work with the community to ensure we are doing all we can to best serve our residents with compassion and understanding,” said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “Project Guardian engages the community, builds positive relationships, and embraces public safety as a shared responsibility. It’s an example of what we can accomplish together.”
