The Herbert Protocol

Do you care for someone who has dementia and worry that they might go missing?

The Herbert Protocol is here to help find them if they do.

Nothing is more worrying or distressing than when a loved one or friend goes missing or doesn't return home when expected.

For people living with or caring for someone with dementia, this may be quite common. The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme adopted by Cleveland Police and other police services across the country.

It encourages carers, families, friends or neighbours, to hold information about the person with dementia that can help the police find them if they do go missing.

The basis of the scheme is for vital information about the person such as medication, description, photograph, significant places in the person's life and their daily routine, to be recorded on a form.

Please visit the Cleveland Police website for more information.
