COLUMBUS, Ga.- Outside the Columbus Government Center, members of the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office unveiled a car dedicated to Autism Awareness.
This vehicle joins a car in their fleet dedicated to the fight of all cancers.
Sheriff John Darr says the puzzle piece clad car is a great way for the department to show their dedication to bringing attention to Autism.
Sergeant Lauren Stinson from the Sheriff’s Office has a son with Autism. She says seeing the car brings her great happiness in knowing people are being made more aware of the disorder. “It’s not an easy task,” Sgt. Stinson said. “Everyday is different. You just have to deal with each day. No child with autism is the same. There’s no cause or nobody knows what causes it and how to fix it. It’s a daily struggle.”
Sheriff Darr says that two more cars dedicated to causes will be unveiled in the future.
