Hingham Police Department Reminds Residents of Exceptional Needs Registry

Chief David Jones and the Hingham Police Department would like to remind residents of the department's Exceptional Needs Registry, which ensures residents with cognitive or physical impairments have their needs met in the event of a public safety response. 

Hingham's Exceptional Needs Registry is a free, voluntary and confidential program through which residents may share information about those in their household who live with a disability so that police officers and firefighters can be mindful of their needs when responding to a call for service.

The registry contains information about individuals' communication preferences and limitations, medical needs, potential triggers -- like loud noises or flashing lights -- and effective calming techniques that can assist first responders in their interactions with individuals with differing needs.

All information provided by families is kept confidential and can be removed from the registry at their request. 

"The Exceptional Needs Registry enables us to best serve all of our residents and be responsive to any impairments or limitations they may have," Chief Jones said. "I strongly encourage anyone with a family member with special needs to opt-in to this program to ensure those needs are met to the fullest possible extent."

Download and complete the Exceptional Needs Registry Form (PDF). The application can also be picked up at any of the following locations: 

  • Central Fire Station - 339 Main St. 
  • Police Department - 212 Central St. 
  • Town Hall - 210 Central St. 
  • Hingham Public Library - 66 Leavitt St. 
  • Senior Center - 224 Central St.

Forms can be submitted one of the following ways: 

  • Email - send to
  • In-person - Police Department Headquarters, at 212 Central Street (please place inside an envelope marked "SSRECC")
  • Fax - send to 781-741-1483
