Special Needs Registry
What is the Special Needs Registry?
The Laurens County Sheriff's Office Special Needs Registry is a voluntary service open to all citizens with disabilities who reside in Laurens County. The registry was created to help deputies and other emergency service personnel better assist residents with special needs in the event of an emergency by providing us with vital information regarding a registrant’s disability or medical condition, emergency contact information, a physical description and current photograph of the registrant.
How will the information provided help a person with special needs during an emergency or call for service?
The information contained in the registry can help in several different ways. When a deputy responds to a call for service, dispatchers relay that someone at that location is on the registry. Depending on the type of call, the responding deputy can better assess the type of response necessary and request other appropriate resources accordingly. Deputies and other first responders can better gauge their responses. In addition, in the event that a person with special needs is reported missing, first responders will have current photographs and other vital information available that could aid in locating the missing person faster.
Who has access to the registrant's information?
Information provided is strictly confidential and will only be shared with first responders.
