Police Scotland is adopting a single national process for the Herbert Protocol. It enables police officers to quickly obtain vital information about vulnerable people who have been reported missing. The implementation has been developed through a partnership between Police Scotland, Health & Social Care Scotland, Alzheimer Scotland, and the Scottish Government.
If you care for someone with dementia, please give yourself some peace of mind and fill out the form.
The Herbert Protocol can also be used together with Alzheimer Scotland’s Purple Alert. This is a free app, which has been designed to help trace missing people with dementia. When a vulnerable person with dementia goes missing, app users are notified and can help with local searches.
