Connections: How can members of law enforcement better interact with people who have disabilities?
How can members of law enforcement better interact with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities? We hear from participants of a recent event with the Arc of Monroe and the Advocacy Alliance. We talk with members of law enforcement about police training techniques, and we hear from people with disabilities and advocates about their perspectives and experiences.
