Special Alert Registry


The Special Alert Registry is a free, secure safety tool designed to help Beverly Hills Police Department officers during contacts with community members with disabilities such as, but not limited to; Autism, Schizophrenia, Dementia, deafness or any other mental / developmental disabilities. The Registry is intended for residents of Beverly Hills who may find their communication abilities challenged or ineffective when interacting with public safety personnel.

The Special Alert Registry gives police immediate access to critical information about a registered person such as emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, known routines, favorite attractions, or special needs of the individual who is registered. This information can assist officers in communicating with, locating a residence for, or handling an emergency involving an individual with special needs.


Annual Registration is required. An email will be sent to the parent / caregiver who has registered the individual thirty (30) days prior to the date of the annual registration. If an existing registration must be updated for any reason (change of address, change of caregiver, or other significant changes in the initial registration), we ask that an updated form be submitted as soon as possible. Registrations will be removed and destroyed if not updated after two years.


Information provided in the Special Alert Registry is available only to authorized Beverly Hills Police Department personnel for use in an emergency. 


Please note that participation in the Special Alert Registry is voluntary and does not guarantee any special treatment. Police will act according to policy, procedure, and best practice depending on the circumstances presented. An individual with special needs may still be arrested, should he or she break the law. Parents or caregivers who register a family member and adults who register themselves in the Special Needs Registry authorize the release of the personal information to the Beverly Hills Police Department. Beverly Hills Police Department personnel may use the information to help identify and assist the individual during an emergency or other encounter with public safety personnel. Parents, caregivers and adults who register themselves are responsible for the accuracy of the information and for updating the information when it changes or annually.
