Dear PoliceOne Member,

The dash-cam video in the below item from Livonia (Mich.) shows police officers there heroically saving a "severely autistic" 11-year-old boy from running into traffic and then belting him into the back seat of the squad car to prevent him from harming himself (he had been bashing his head into the partition).

We at PoliceOne commend these officers and all who take such care in coming to the aid of ASD subjects. As we've covered recently in this space, these subjects present a challenge for officers, and today we bring you some tips for safely handling such situations.

News Analysis:
Police and autism: ASD subjects present an incredible challenge to cops
 By PoliceOne Senior Editor Doug Wyllie
The light bars are flashing. There is a cacophony of voices. The responding officers are putting hands on a resistant subject. All hell breaks loose. This could be about any call a cop encounters, but when the call involves a person who has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the event itself and its aftermath can get even more difficult for everyone.
