The Herbert Protocol ?

26395_Herbert_Protocol_Poster_postableFollowing last nights BBC 1 documentary `Reported Missing` are you aware of the Herbert Protocol?

Do you care for, or are you the family or friend of an elderly or vulnerable adult who is at risk of going missing? The Herbert Protocol is a scheme which will see family, friends and care providers working together not only to prevent vulnerable adults going missing, but, also to improve responses for locating them if they do. Pre-planning is essential! When you sign up to The Herbert Protocol you will be contacted and issued with a standardised document that will be completed and then held with someone close to the person being registered, but where police can access it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should it be needed. This document will include information that, if needed, locate favourite places, routes to get there, regular bus routes, local shops, eateries etc. All of this information can be essential in cutting down the time an individual is missing and support police in their search.

To find out more or register for the scheme please contact 101 or email: Herbertprotocol@durham.pnn.police.uk
