Autism: a guide for police officers and staff
The National Autistic Society
Published by
The National Autistic Society

Autism affects more than 1% of the population. You’re therefore highly likely to encounter someone who is on the autism spectrum at some point in your policing career. This might include autistic people who aren’t yet diagnosed.

This guide provides background information about autism and aims to help all police officers and staff who may come into contact with autistic children or adults meet their responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 (Disability Discrimination Act 1995, Northern Ireland). It’s designed to be used as a regular reference.
