If you care for someone living
with dementia and worry
they may go missing, a new scheme launched by
Northamptonshire Police is here to help.
The Herbert Protocol is a form filled out by the
person living with dementia, their family or
carer, which covers key information including
their description, a current photograph, medical
information, favourite locations, hobbies, routines
and more.
Stored safely in the home of the person it relates
to, the form can be handed to police if they are
reported missing, providing immediate, detailed
insight into their life and habits to inform search
efforts so they can be found as quickly as possible.
Superintendent Emily Vernon said: “By putting vital
details straight into the hands of police officers out
looking for the missing person, it means the search
can cover the most relevant places first, helping to
find them as quickly as possible.”
The Herbert Protocol form can be downloaded
from the Northamptonshire Police website and
completed electronically or by hand. If the person
it relates to goes missing, call 999 immediately
and tell the call handler that a completed Herbert
Protocol form exists. It is then emailed or handed
to police officers, and returned when the person is
found.
