In partnership with Northamptonshire Police, Northamptonshire Safeguarding Adults Board have relaunched the Herbert Protocol.
People caring for someone living with dementia are encouraged to use this initiative to help keep people with dementia safe and found.
The Herbert Protocol enables carers and families of people living with dementia to log key information about them on a form including their description, a current photograph, medical information, favourite locations and more.
Stored securely where the person lives, the form can be handed straight to the police if they are reported missing, providing immediate, detailed insight into their life and habits, helping direct search efforts so they can be found as quickly as possible.
Northamptonshire Police have also developed a tutorial video explaining how the Herbert Protocol should be used.
