The Herbert Protocol - Important Information

Alert message sent 05/10/2021 08:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


What is the Herbert Protocol?

The protocol is a form which family members or carers complete for a person living with dementia or at risk of going missing. The form is available to download from Police Scotland’s website
https://www.scotland.police.uk/what-s-happening/missing-persons/the-herbert-protocol/.
 
It provides personal details, medical history, significant locations and information about previous incidents of going missing.

The protocol can be printed out and stored in a safe, easily accessible place in the person’s home or kept by a family member electronically. It is important to keep the protocol updated.

It enables police officers to quickly obtain vital information about vulnerable people who have been reported missing.

Since 2017 the Herbert Protocol has been used many times to help police and other agencies quickly and safely locate missing people who have dementia. The scheme was rolled out nationwide on 21st September, 2021.
