Special Needs Awareness Police Program
The Special Needs Awareness Police Program (SNAPP) is a voluntary program implemented to assist residents with special needs and their family members. The program is designed to help residents communicate their unique and individualized needs to first responders. First responders will use this information to modify their responses and interactions during an emergency or crisis. All Decatur County/Greensburg, Indiana residents with special needs including but not limited to mental disabilities, physical disabilities, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease will have access to SNAPP. This program is inclusive to anyone who regularly visits Greensburg due to employment, education, daycare, etc. The information provided remains valid for two years.
There are two types of registrations available:
1. A registration specifically for family/guardians completing the information on behalf of a minor or person in their care.
2. A self-registration form for residents providing information regarding their own needs.
After completing the proper registration form, there are two types of releases available:
1. A release specifically for family/guardians completing the information on behalf of a minor or person in their care.
2. A self-release for residents providing information regarding their own needs.
By filling out the appropriate registration and release, residents and their parents/guardians consent to have the information added to the Greensburg Police Department's searchable database. The information provided will be available to law enforcement, paramedics, and firefighters responding to a home or any location within Decatur County/Greensburg involving a registered participant. First responders will use this information to assist with their efforts in providing safe, effective, and appropriate responses.
If you are a person with special needs and would like to participate in SNAPP, fill out the SNAPP Registration Form and the SNAPP Self Release Form.
