Safe Interaction Program

The Safe Interaction Program (SIP) is an advocacy program implemented by the Elizabeth Police Department to build on our existing relationship alongside people with special needs and their loved ones. The purpose of the program is to help caregivers and individuals whom are adversely affected by a disability to enhance the quality of search-and-rescue response and interactions with members of law enforcement.
