Special Needs Alert Program 

The Hazelwood Police Department has implemented a Special Needs Alert Program for its residents which is utilized for a variety of families/individuals who may be disabled or have certain medical issues. The purpose of this cost-free program is to help citizens who require assistance from a first responder to identify any special needs of the resident and to effectively communicate without issue. Our goal is to continue to provide the most efficient and professional service to our community.

The program entails placing a color-coded sticker on or near the front storm door/window of the residence to ensure proper sight by a first responder. The program is voluntary for individuals living with:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease/Dementia
  • Deaf/Hearing Impaired
  • Autism or Special Needs
  • Diabetic
  • Disabled

Family members can register themselves or their loved ones in person at the Hazelwood Police Department or by completing our online form below. The information is confidential and only accessible by the Hazelwood Police Department. The database will contain pedigree and contact information, and a computed-aided dispatch alert will be placed on the residence so responding personnel know the conditions prior to arriving. Stickers can be picked up from the Hazelwood Police Department or delivered to you due to mobile restrictions.

Don’t want a sticker placed on your residence? You can still participate in the program. Complete the required fields in the form and click "CAD alert only" towards the bottom. This way, your information remains secure with us and only a alert will be placed on the residence for whatever information you provide.
