The Herbert Protocol
Wiltshire Police have introduced a nationwide scheme to help find a missing person with dementia. This is a registered scheme designed to help police and family and friends locate a missing person. If you care for someone with dementia they are asking you to complete a simple booklet recording important details such as medication, mobile numbers, places previously located as well as a recent photograph. If a family member friend or resident then goes missing, the booklet can be handed to police reducing the time it takes to gather information during the initial critical stages of a search, which police call "the golden hour"
You can download the PDF version of the booklet here: https://www.wiltshire.police.uk/SysSiteAssets/media/downloads/central/advice/herbert-protocol/wiltshire/herbert-protocol-booklet-form.pdf
