Vulnerable Sector Registry
The Vulnerable Sector Registry allows caregivers of vulnerable persons to submit vital information to a database that will be used by police and other emergency services during a crisis situation.
What is a Vulnerable Person?
A Vulnerable Person is defined as a person who due to medical, mental health or physical condition may exhibit patterns of behaviour that may pose a danger to that person. This may include:
- A tendency to wander
- The inability to communicate
- Fascinations or attractions (water, construction sites etc.)
- Social responses (fear of strangers, aggression)
What are examples of Vulnerable Persons?
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- an Acquired Brain Injury
- a Mental Health condition that causes a person to exhibit the behaviours above
Who can submit this information?
Parents or caregivers of a vulnerable person living within the Municipality of Chatham-Kent can submit this information.
What information is required?
During registration, you will be asked to provide information such as:
- name of vulnerable person
- date of birth
- physical descriptors including marks, scars or tattoos
- contact information
- methods of approach
- objects or attraction
- a photograph of the face of the vulnerable person (JPEG format only)
How is this information used?
