The Cherry Hills Village Police Department Special Needs Registry is a database containing information about individuals in the Village with special needs who may require assistance in the event of a disaster. The information may also be used to assist emergency personnel and volunteers in providing assistance. Participation on the Special Needs Registry is voluntary.
The Police Department's mission is to assess and plan for hazards and emergencies and work with other public safety agencies to ensure public welfare. As a pre-planning tool, the Special Needs Registry should be considered for all people who have special needs. For the purposes of this registry we would define individuals with "special needs" as:
Individuals who, due to physical, mental, developmental conditions or advanced age, are functionally limited in their ability to independently carry out activities of daily living.
This definition could be expanded during times of disaster to include:
Individuals who, due to a disaster (actual or impending), are at increased risk of being functionally limited in their ability to independently carry out activities of daily living.
The Village will use reasonable efforts to protect the information provided in this form including pursuing legal action to prevent disclosure when deemed necessary and appropriate by the Village. However, the Village does not warrant the information provided will be held confidential under the Colorado Open Records Act. Please do not provide information that you believe would compromise your security.
