New Iberia Police are now using a system that will alert officers if a special needs citizen is involved in a call.

According to a Facebook post by the city, the system will let a responding officer know that a person with special needs lives at the address of the call they’re answering.

The system will let the officer know what kind of special needs, condition or disability the person has.

If you’d like to enter someone into the system, fill out this form and send it to the Communications Supervisor listed on the form. You also can drop it off at Police Headquarters or you can leave it with the receptionist at City Hall.
