Snapshot: Hamilton County Sheriff’s Dept. gets picture communication boards


Hamilton County sheriff’s deputies Kevin Neal and John Cline pause with picture communication boards that the sheriff’s department purchased through a grant provided by the Autism Society of America and Today’s Champions. The communication boards, which will be placed in patrol vehicles, will give police, firefighters and EMS providers a way to communicate with a person who may be nonverbal, have limited English skills, have autism or mental health issues.
