The Herbert Protocol
The Herbert Protocol is a nationally recognised scheme supported and endorsed by Police Scotland. It is not intended to replace existing safeguarding and security measures, instead provide additional support and reassurance.
It is an information gathering tool to assist the police to find a person living with dementia, or similar, who has been reported missing. It consists of a form that contains vital information about the person at risk that can be passed to the police at the initial point the person is reported missing. The existence of this information will save police critical time in establishing the history of the missing person and their potential location.
Once complete, the form is retained by carers/relatives (not police), and a copy should also be placed within the home or care setting in a prominent position so as easily available to police when required. Please pass on information on the Herbert Protocol to anyone it may be of use to.
