The primary goal of the Blue Envelope Program is to assist drivers diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with document organization and to help them understand what to do during a motor vehicle stop. The Blue Envelope Program further provides police officers with the means to quickly identify an operator of a motor vehicle who has ASD and helps guide officers during the interaction.
The Hunterdon County Police Chiefs’ Association developed its Blue Envelope Program modeled on a similar program first organized and implemented in Connecticut. The purpose of the Blue Envelope Program is to improve the interaction between a driver with ASD and a police officer during a traffic stop.
The blue envelopes will be distributed to all of Hunterdon County’s police departments, the Sheriff’s Office, the Prosecutor's Office, and the local State Police barracks.
