Herbert Protocol

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

The Herbert Protocol is here to help them find them if they do and is a national scheme adopted by Cleveland Police, North Yorkshire and other police services across the country.

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