The Herbert Protocol (Click to view poster)

From Monday, August 14, Essex Police is adopting a national scheme aimed to help reduce the time taken to gather vital information when a person with dementia goes missing.

The Herbert Protocol, named after war veteran George Herbert who lived with dementia, encourages carers, friends and relatives of people with dementia to fill in a form which could help authorities find their loved one quicker in the event of them going missing.

Essex Police is working with Essex County Council, Thurrock and Southend unitary authorities, the Alzheimer’s Society and volunteer organisation Essex Search and Rescue to encourage the completion of the form which can then be passed to the police in the event someone with dementia cannot be found.

The form records all the vital details in one place including medication requires, mobile numbers, places previously located or attended, a photo, details of daily routine etc.
In the event someone goes missing a completed form saves vital time allowing officers the ability to get on with searching rather than gathering basic information.

Please encourage all people living with Dementia, their families, carers to go to the following site and completed and store the form for their records.

If you are a support provider the attached flyer can be printed and used to raise awareness and the attached briefing can be used to provide additional information.
