From the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin, March 2005
Autism and Law Enforcement, produced by Dennis Debbaudt and directed by Dave Legacy.
Reviewed by Mary Otto Oregon Police Corps Boring, Oregon
The video Autism and Law Enforcement provides a quick and engaging education in autism that can help increase safety for both officers and individuals with autism, as well as minimize the potential for litigation that could occur as a result of a misunderstanding. Interviews and vignettes involving people with autism concretely convey the reality of how challenging they can be to interact with and how vulnerable to crime and exploitation they are. Each will have difficulty interacting socially and communicating, which will challenge police attempting to help them or investigate crimes.

Autism and Law Enforcement, produced by Dennis Debbaudy and directed by Dave Legacy, April 2004.
Reviewed by John M. Skinner Chief, Port St. Lucie, Florida, Police Department
Since September 11, 2001, federal, state, and local training mandates have warranted tremendous attention for chief executives.
My review of Autism and Law Enforcement, a 21-minute video, not only enlightened me as a police chief but made me immediately recognize it as a valuable resource for all law enforcement officers. The producer, a law enforcement veteran and father of a son with autism, maintains viewer interest by providing clear, concise bullet points about the nature of the disability; how officers should approach an individual with autism; and what to expect as a response from an officer's field interview.
After viewing the tape, I immediately recognized the importance of familiarizing officers with this particular disability. A startling statistic especially caught my attention: a greater likelihood exists for encountering a person with autism in an officer's daily assignments than that of many other forms of disability. Failure on the part of the officer to recognize the inherent characteristics of this particular disability may result in an inappropriate response or, worse, an unnecessary arrest or excessive use of force.
