About the training

There have been a number of cases over the years of autistic people being wrongly arrested or approached by the police due to their 'unusual behaviour'.
Difficulties may arise at any stage of communication between the police and someone on the autism spectrum, from the initial approach on the street to the interview process, whether that be as a suspect or as a witness to a crime. The online module will focus on different elements of policing by using case studies, exploring people's experiences in public spaces and offering advice on how to make reasonable adjustments.
