Vulnerable Persons Registry
The Vulnerable Persons Registry is a voluntary program that allows individuals or families to provide important information about a loved one that may require special assistance in an emergency.
By enrolling in the registry, families and caregivers can provide valuable information to the police that can help officers respond quickly and effectively in an emergency. This information can include the individual’s name, photo, physical description, communication methods, and any medical or behavioural issues that may be important for officers to know to provide appropriate assistance.
To enroll in the Vulnerable Persons Registry, interested individuals or families can visit the Chatham-Kent Police Service website. The registry is entirely voluntary, and all information provided will be kept confidential and used only for emergencies.
The Chatham-Kent Police Service is committed to providing the highest level of service to all members of our community. The Vulnerable Persons Registry is just one way we are working to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents. We encourage all families and caregivers of vulnerable persons to consider enrolling in the registry and spread the word about this important program.
