Special Needs Registry Form

Franklin Police Department, Franklin, WI

The City of Franklin Police Department recognizes that some members of our community may have special needs, or may react differently when coming into contact with police officers or firefighters during an emergency situation. With this in mind, we’ve created a Special Needs Registry.

The Special Needs Registry is available for all residents requiring special needs resulting from a physical, emotional, or medical condition (i.e. dementia, autism, etc.). Information provided is maintained in a confidential database which will assist emergency responders in providing a more informed response to those with special needs during an emergency.  If you are interested in participating in the Special Needs Registry, please fill out and submit the form below.
