What is The Herbert Protocol?
The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a war veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia. It consists of a form for recording key information which the police will require if the vulnerable person goes missing.
Carers, family members and friends should complete part one of the form in advance, and obtain a recent photograph of the vulnerable person. In the event the person goes missing.
Part Two should be completed and handed to the Police service.
This process saves the police precious minutes at the beginning of a search as they will have all the pertinent information to hand immediately. This could mean all the difference in finding a missing loved one.
