The Key West Police Department kicked off National Autism Awareness Month with a colorful gathering of all things awareness: blue badges, puzzle patches, wrapped cars, and even autism awareness horse blankets!
The Department is proud to support the Autism Society of the Keys (ASK) to help advocate, educate and support their mission of helping families affected by autism.
April is Autism Awareness Month, which is part of our ongoing effort to support the members of our community with special needs.
The community can help support ASK by purchasing KWPD autism awareness patches and challenge coins. Hope Haley, the wife of Lt. Matt Haley, is leading this drive. Both the patches and coins are available on eBay.
