Wyckoff Police Department

Project Blue Envelope

The Wyckoff Police Department is proud to announce a new program to help people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) during a traffic stop. It's called the Blue Envelope Program.

The goal of this program is to avoid any misunderstandings between officers and individuals with ASD. If someone with ASD gets pulled over, the driver presents the Blue Envelope. The driver will keep a copy of their driver's license, registration card, current insurance card, and an emergency contact list inside the blue envelope. The outside of the blue envelope contains instructions for the driver, like keeping hands on the wheel and a warning about the flashing lights and noises. The reverse side of the envelope contains instructions for the police officer, such as simplifying requests and if the driver becomes upset, to contact a person on the emergency contact card. A checked off box will also indicate whether the driver is verbal or nonverbal.

If you or a loved one would like to participate in the Blue Envelope Program, please stop at the Wyckoff Police Department or call our main number (201) 891-2121 and an officer will drop off your blue envelope. 
The program is currently only available to Township of Wyckoff residents.
