APRIL IS AUTISM ACCEPTANCE MONTH AND THE SIOUX CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT IS TEAMING UP WITH THE LOCAL PIER CENTER FOR AUTISM TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF THE DEVELOPMENTAL BEHAVIORAL DISORDER AND RAISE MONEY FOR THE CENTER.

POLICE CHIEF REX MUELLER SAYS CASES OF AUTISM CONTINUE TO RISE IN THE UNITED STATES, AND NOBODY REALLY KNOWS WHAT THE CAUSE OF THE DISORDER IS:

AUTISM1 OC……….IMPACTED BY AUTISM. ;17

THE DEPARTMENT IS SELLING POLICE LOGO PATCHES WITH THE AUTISM PUZZLE SYMBOL FOR TEN DOLLARS EACH TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE PIER CENTER:

AUTISM2 OC…….IN THE MIDDLE. :07

MIRANDA SMALLEY, CLINICAL DIRECTOR OF THE LOCAL PIER CENTER, SAYS THE MONEY RAISED WILL HELP EXPAND LOCAL SERVICES AND HELP THE CENTER LOCATE INTO A NEW, LARGER FACILITY ON STADIUM DRIVE:

AUTISM3 OC……..25 FAMILIES. :17

THERE ARE 70 FAMILIES CURRENTLY ON A WAITING LIST FOR THE CLINIC FROM UP TO 50 MILES AWAY SO THE EXPANSION NEED IS CRITICAL.

YOU MAY PURCHASE A PATCH AT THE FRONT DESK OF THE POLICE HEADQUARTERS AT 6TH AND DOUGLAS OR AT THE LOCAL PIER CENTER LOCATED AT 4303 STONE AVENUE.
