The Herbert Protocol is being introduced into Essex by Essex Police

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which is being introduced in Essex by Essex Police, in partnership with other agencies, including Alzheimer’s Society, Essex Search and Rescue, Essex County Council and the unitary authorities of Thurrock and Southend.

The scheme encourages carers to complete a form compiled of useful information, which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person with dementia going missing.

The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia.

This will be rolled out across Southend and Thurrock soon as a way to help vulnerable missing people with dementia.
