This is an important notification from Gwent Now – Gwent Police Messaging/Alert System

Are you currently supporting a vulnerable person in your family, neighbours, workplace with Dementia, Alzheimer’s or with limited mental capacity?  Have you heard of the Herbert Protocol?

The Herbert Protocol is a risk reduction tool to be used in the event of an adult with one of these conditions goes missing.  It is named after George Herbert a War Veteran of the Normandy Landings who suffered with dementia. George sadly died when he went ‘missing’ on his way to his childhood home.

How do I register?  It is a simple form 📄 which contains vital information about a person that can be added to our police systems with a recent photograph 📸. This will allow officers to have at hand important information, hopefully saving precious time in finding the missing person.

The person does not have to have wandered previously to complete a form, if you believe them to be at risk please contact us via email 📧:  to request a form. 

If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch, Community Group or Support Service and would like to find out more about the Herbert Protocol please get in touch.
