On February 09, 2017 Christopher T. Greco, New Rochelle Police Detective and PBA President started the New Rochelle Police Autism Patch challenge to raise awareness and acceptance of Autism within the emergency services community throughout Westchester County and beyond.
The biggest goal of the challenge was to remind first responder agencies to ensure that proper training and protocols are in place when dealing with and responding to calls of service involving persons with autism and other cognitive disorders.
Over 150 agencies have since participated in the challenge from New Rochelle, to the NYPD, to Texas, Kentucky and Florida.
