Police cop rewards for dealing with disabled

A Victoria Police member who coordinated a sensory-friendly and person-centred search for a young autistic man has been recognised with the 2020 Public Advocate Award for Outstanding Police Service to People with Disability.

The Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) said Acting Inspector Christine Lalor worked closely with the young man’s family and teachers to ensure the search approach considered his sensory and communication needs.
