Herbert Protocol

Published: 6 Jul 20

Are you currently supporting a vulnerable person in your family, neighbours, workplace with Dementia, Alzheimer’s or with limited mental capacity? Have you heard of the Herbert Protocol? The Herbert Protocol is a risk reduction tool to be used in the event of an adult with one of these conditions goes missing. It is named after George Herbert a War Veteran of the Normandy Landings who suffered with dementia. George sadly died when he went ‘missing’ on his way to his childhood home. How do I register? It is a simple form which contains vital information about a person that can be added to our police systems with a recent photograph. This will allow officers to have at hand important information, hopefully saving precious time in finding the missing person. The person does not have to have wandered previously to complete a form, if you believe them to be at risk please contact us via email: crimeprevention@gwent.pnn.police.uk to request a form. If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch, Community Group or Support Service and would like to find out more about the Herbert Protocol please get in touch. Read More...
