Tue, 20 Jul 2021 03:18:27 EDT
Michigan residents with conditions that could impede communication with law enforcement such as deafness or autism can now apply to have a designation associated with their information that comes up on police computer systems during traffic stops. Secretary of state Jocelyn Benson promoted the communication impediment designation that went into effect this month during a news conference Monday in Mason. The designation would not appear on identification cards or documents, but it would appear on the law enforcement information network that officers use to create safe and productive interactions.
