The Special Needs Registry is a free, secure safety tool that helps Santa Clarita Sheriffs recognize and respond to people with special needs. The Special Needs Registry (SNR) is maintained by the City of Santa Clarita in conjunction with the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Department.

SCV residents are invited to proactively provide information about a loved one with special needs of any age, who may require special assistance in an emergency or interaction with first responders. Deputies can access the information in the secure database when needed to assist residents with special needs.

When families or caregivers voluntarily register an individuals with special needs in the SNR deputies will:
1. Have a photograph, description and contact information for the person with special needs.
2. Have information needed to find those who wander away from home or get lost.
3. Be aware of special medical, safety and behavioral concerns of individuals with disabilities or medical conditions.
4. Be aware of accommodations that may be needed in interacting with the person.

Parents and caregivers may enroll a person of any age with any type of medical condition or disability, including but not limited to: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer’s or Dementia, Bipolar Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Epilepsy. Adults with special needs may also enroll themselves to provide important information in case of emergency.
