RISE for Autism partnered with Pathfinders for Autism to host our first BE SAFE The Movie on September 23, 2015. We were honored to have officers from the Annapolis, Prince George's, and Anne Arundel Police Departments, led by Captain Frank Tewey. 50 self-advocates, their families and caregivers, and the officers worked together to gain a better understanding of responding to interactions with police, as well as, the challenges that individuals with Autism Spectrum and Related Disorders may experience during the process.
If you are interested in bringing BE SAFE to your school, center, or police department please contact Shannon Majoros at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is BE SAFE The Movie??
BE SAFE The Movie
Realistic Scenarios. Real Police.
BE SAFE The Movie uses video modeling to show viewers how to interact with the police in everyday encounters. Positive models help viewers of all abilities learn what to do and say when meeting the police.
Crucial safety skills are clearly demonstrated in 7 Episodes, ranging from following instructions to the right to remain silent. In each scene, real police interact with special needs individuals, giving BE SAFE true authenticity.
BE SAFE is great for teens and adults with disabilities and EVERYONE else for that matter! Help prevent problems and improve outcomes in police encounters through 7 Episodes.

What participants are saying about BE SAFE: The Movie
"I would recommend this to all law enforcement officers."
- Anne Arundel County Police Officer
"I think we should open this up for a training for the whole (police) agency. We often run into situations where a child is in crisis and we don't have the training or knowledge to act appropriately."
- Baltimore County Police Officer
"The program exceeded my expectations. Shannon is a wonderful presenter. The program is an excellent mix of talk, video and activities that kept the students attentive and engaged. Well organized with clear material. I liked the emphasis on safety; the rules and don'ts."
- School Administrator
"All kids should do this training! I learned about the laws and I'm not afraid of the police officers anymore."
