DOVER — In a move that underscores its commitment to inclusivity and safety, the Dover Police Department has introduced a Special Needs Registry for residents of Dover. The announcement, made at recent community outreach events, outlines the department’s proactive approach to ensure the well-being of individuals with disabilities within the town.

The registry is a voluntary service available to all residents with disabilities, whether they live, work, or attend school in Dover. The main goal of this initiative is to equip first responders with critical details about a registrant’s disability, emergency contact details, physical characteristics, and more. By having this information in advance, emergency personnel can ensure they provide more tailored and effective assistance during incidents.

Residents can access the registration forms in both English and Spanish on the Dover Police Department’s official website. Alternatively, the department’s Community Affairs Unit can email the forms upon request. Once filled out, these can be emailed back to Communityaffairs@doverpolicenj.org for processing.

In addition to the registry, the department also introduced the Blue Envelope Program, designed to assist vehicle drivers who might be on the Autism Spectrum. Necessary documents for this program, available in English and Spanish, can be found on the department’s website or obtained from the Community Affairs Unit.

For further details, questions, or concerns regarding the Special Needs Registry or the Blue Envelope Program, individuals are encouraged to reach out directly via email at Communityaffairs@doverpolicenj.org.
