Autism Outreach Program-Miramar PD Cares
The Miramar Police Department's Autism Outreach Program will allow our officers to better serve those in our community who live with Autism. Through this program, we hope to maintain a database of Autistic individuals we may interact with in hopes of improving our response. The link below directs to a form to be filled out with information about the person with Autism. Once the form is submitted, it will be sent directly to Miramar Police Department's Communications Unit to input the information into our database. Medical information will be kept confidential and made available only to our patrol officers. This process will allow officers who are responding to an incident involving a person with Autism to appropriately prepare for and handle the situation. Ultimately, through the Miramar PD's Autism Outreach Program, we will be improving these interactions for all parties involved.
The Miramar Police Department’s Volunteer Chaplains Unit was established to provide aid and comfort to those in need and to provide a calm and thoughtful presence in times of stress, hardship and grief.

LGBTQIA Safe Place Program
The LGBTQIA Safe Place Initiative is a safety campaign for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual community. Discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity continues to be pervasive throughout the United States. Such harassment can be extremely traumatic to teenagers and young adults, and may often lead to aggressive bullying. The LGBTQIA Safe Place initiative is designed to provide members of the LGBTQIA community with recognizable safe place locations throughout the city where they can go to if they are a victim of crime or are actively being bullied. Persons who seek refuge in a Safe Place location can be assured that if they are the victim of a crime, police will promptly be called. Miramar PD will provide Safe Place decals to designated city facilitates, local businesses, and other organizations for those entities to post as a symbol of safety for the victims of LGBTQIA crimes and harassment.
