From the article: 

Fifteen peace officers from four local law enforcement agencies, including Belmont, recently received specialized training about autism and related disabilities through the Experience Autism program, the only evidence-based autism police training in the country.

Officers experienced simulation activities to understand what it is like to have features of autism and learned how to interact effectively with individuals with autism and related conditions. The event was organized and supported by Organizational Development & Learning Solutions business group at UMass Donahue Institute and sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services.
