Sheriff's vehicles to carry autism sensory items

Bryce Carter has been helping the county’s public safety agencies for over three years as the Public Safety ITS director for the Miami County Sheriff’s Office.

Carter, who has a degree from Northwest Vista College in San Antonio, Texas, is a technology whiz who Capt. Matt Kelly said will always be one of the smartest people in the room.

Bryce Carter also has nonverbal autism.

“I feel people should know that nonverbal autism does not define intelligence, independence, life, and communication,” Carter wrote in an email. “Everybody in the world is different, but just because somebody is nonverbal does not mean they have nothing to say.”
