The Herbert Protocol has been established to help those vulnerable people living with Dementia, should they go wandering, it is designed to keep those people safe and give families peace of mind. The Herbert protocol is a quick form and photo ID stored within the police database and used if needed regarding these vulnerable people.
It would be helpful for families where there is a person with dementia, to complete this form and let the police have it on their files to make things more efficient should a person with dementia go missing.
Please print this form and hand in to Bedfordshire Police or follow the Email and Fax instructions on the form. Access more information here
