Law Enforcement & FASD

 FASD Guide for Police Officers.

This guide is part of a program designed to

increase your awareness of disabilities caused by

pre-natal exposure to alcohol and to help you be

more effective in your investigations when dealing

with individuals with FASD.

Dealing with individuals with FASD is not

something you alone can address. It is a medical,

social, educational and judicial issue that requires

a community response.

However, as a police officer,

you have a key role in networking to this effect because

you are a front-line worker who will come in contact

with a high number of victims, witnesses and suspects

who have been affected by alcohol prenatally.

As a police officer, your role is not in diagnosing FASD

but in recognizing the possibility that the individual

may be affected.

You must always remember that

people with FASD are considered “diminished

capacity” thus requiring consideration to their

special needs and a compassionate response.

This guide will provide you with

information on FASD, how to recognize

the impacts of this condition, how you should

approach investigations involving an individual

with FASD, and where you can turn for

help in conducting your investigations.

It is very impotant for police and law enforcement officials to remember that FASD is an invisible disability and that people with this condition get the right kind of advice and support while being questioned.

We are on call 24 hrs a day for help or advice.
