Welcome to the Special Needs Registry homepage. The purpose of this website is to provide residents with information about local resources and programs for families who care for individuals with special needs.
Special Needs Registry
The Santa Clarita Valley Special Needs Registry assists law enforcement personnel to be more responsive in emergencies to residents of the Santa Clarita Valley with special needs. Maintained by the City of Santa Clarita in conjunction with the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Department, the registry can help law enforcement identify those who cannot identify themselves due to a disability or special need, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, autism, or a speech disorder.
Families or agencies can voluntarily provide information about their individuals with special needs so that law enforcement will:
- Have a photograph, description and contact information for people with special needs in our community who may need special assistance in an emergency.
- Be better equipped to help people with special needs who may become lost, injured, or who may wander away from home.
- Be aware of special medical, safety and behavioral concerns of individuals with special needs.
- Be aware of accommodations that may be needed in interacting with the person.
