The Chatham-Kent Police are reminding citizens of the value of the Vulnerable Persons Registry and encourages citizens to update their registry information to ensure that Police have the most relevant and updated information.
Vulnerable Persons Registry
Did you know that the Chatham-Kent Police Service has a Vulnerable Persons Registry?
The registry is an online tool that allows caregivers and family members to submit vital information to the police should they feel that someone under their care is at a risk due to a physical, medical or mental health condition. In the event of an emergency, police will have quick access to this vital information allowing officers to respond quickly and effectively.
The registry provides critical information such as a person’s physical description, routines, medical or special needs and emergency contact information. Families and caregivers are also encouraged to submit a digital photo, should their loved one get lost or go missing.
