Police adopt new scheme to help find missing people with dementia

A scheme has been launched in North Yorkshire to help police find missing people with dementia.  The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which provides police with quick and detailed information about a person's background and history to help speed up the time taken to find them.

Under the scheme, someone living with dementia or their friends, family or carer completes a form with their daily routine, medication, mobility and places of significance to them, and keeps it in a safe place where it can be quickly found if they go missing. This information will help narrow down police searches for the missing person.
