News Bulletin
Runcorn Local Policing Unit, Halton Castle
and Castlefields Area
March 2017
As of April 2017 Cheshire Constabulary will be using The Herbert Protocol.

Do you have a friend or relative with Alzheimer’s or dementia and often worry that they may go missing?

We appreciate that caring for people with dementia is challenging—and that planning ahead and keeping safe is really important. There is often a risk that people living with dementia can at some point start to ‘walk about’. While this may only be into the garden or street and returning a short time later, some people can get lost and go missing. This can lead to feelings of confusion, fear and vulnerability for individuals and their families, particularly at night time or during times of extreme weather.

The Herbert Protocol is here to help provide you with reassurance, and help you keep friends and relatives safe. It is a national initiative adopted by Cheshire Constabulary, as well as other police forces around the UK.

Full information and a copy of the Protocol guidance and forms can be found on

This is vital—if you can’t find someone in the normal way you would expect to, then you MUST call the police on 999.
