“The Foxborough Police Relief Association is grateful to have the opportunity to support such a worthy cause,” said Detective Patrick Morrison with the Foxborough Police Department. “Thank you to those who have already purchased a patch and helped support this project.” They have already received an overwhelming response from the community.

April is World Autism Month, and it is an opportunity to educate others, promote inclusion and hear success stories of those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. KDC has an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program out of their Foxboro Offices, which provides support for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as their families, to pursue their personal potential and success in their homes and community. Individuals of all ages receive customized services using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, which is scientifically proven to be effective in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
