Vulnerable Registry

Chatham-Kent police want to remind the public that the service has a Vulnerable Persons Registry.

The online tool allows caregivers and family members to submit vital information to police if they feel someone in their care is at risk due to a physical, medical or mental health condition.

In the event of an emergency, it allows police quick access to vital information, enabling a faster response.

The registry provides critical information such as a physical description, routines, medical or other needs and emergency contact information. Families and caregivers are also asked to submit a digital photo should their loved one go missing.
