Special Needs/Medical Registration

In 2008, the Shelton Police Department created the Medical/Special Needs Registration Database.  Over the last few years, Officer’s have come across incidents where a person has not been able to communicate who they were or where they lived due to a pre-existing medical condition.  The theory behind the database is to collect data on persons who may need special assistance in the event of an emergency or who may not be able to communicate with emergency responders. 

Information from the Medical/Special Needs Registration Database is entered into the Shelton Police Department's CAD database.  This will trigger special information "alerts" when your address is entered into the CAD for a call for service.  This alert will inform the dispatchers of a particular medical problem or emergency contact information for this residence.  Additional information is added to our “Master Name” file that can assist emergency responders.  Adding a photo to the registration forms can help emergency responders identify registered person who may not be able to communicate their name or address due to a medical problem.  This photo can also be entered into the “Master Name” file.

All information is also stored in a binder in the Shelton Police Department Dispatch center.  It is listed in order by street so if a person is found that cannot communicate, and they are registered, maybe they can be identified due to the area they are in.

Below there is a link for the form that we ask you to fill out as part of your registration with the Shelton Police Department’s Medical/Special Needs Registration Database.
