If you’re thinking of bringing BE SAFE to your community, this is the model we recommend! Contact us for more information.
We’re partnering with the Down Syndrome Association of Memphis and the Mid-South to bring a taste of BE SAFE and Experience Autism® to Memphis! This smaller-scale version of our training will still have a big impact on everyone involved. This option is ideal for exposing the community to our programs and help get the ball rolling for a more expansive initiative.

In the afternoon, we’ll be busy with a mini-Experience Autism with officers from many different agencies serving the Memphis area

Mesa Arizona is the first-ever autism certified city in America. The addition of a BE SAFE Certificate Course and BE SAFE Interactive Movie Screening will enhance relationships between those with autism (and related conditions) and law enforcement.
Det. Amanda Stamps, the Crisis Intervention Team Program Coordinator for Mesa PD, has a BE SAFE Certificate. She has been facilitating BE SAFE events regularly for the past two years.
- Detective Stamps submitted a grant proposal to the Gila River Indian Community.
- She won the funding to host a BE SAFE Certificate Course to train even more officers and community members to facilitate BE SAFE events!
- The officers will also take part in a BE SAFE Interactive Movie Screening with students from HOPE High School.
We’re adding an innovation to this Interactive Movie Screening! We’re inviting Elders and Police Officers from the Gila River Indian Community and the Salt River Tribe to observe the BE SAFE Interactive Movie Screening.
- Afterward, we’ll discuss how to adapt the event to build bridges between law enforcement and the Native American community.
- We appreciate our partner, Nancy Martinez of the Chandler Police Department, for helping facilitate our effort to bring BE SAFE to diverse communities.
We’re excited to bring these events to Mesa! Please contact Det. Amanda Stamps with any questions, email email@example.com
