There is limited education requirements for law enforcement officials in the community about working with people with developmental disabilities. This lack of education leads to acts of neglect and abuse by law enforcement officials, whether inadvertent or not. This petition is intended to make the optional 40 hour training on working with people with developmental disabilities a MANDATORY training for all law enforcement officials so that stories like that of Gilberto Powell are never heard again.
