The Barrie Police Service’s Vulnerable Person Registry, launched in 2015, is a free service that 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.
The registry information is required to be updated every year, to ensure it is still valid, and to provide an updated photograph. Previously, caregivers were required to complete a full new registration form. The Barrie Police Service has now made it easier to update registry information annually with a new form that allows caregivers to quickly update the information without needing to complete a full form.
To update their loved one’s profile, caregivers will need:
- The original registration number that they received when they signed up online
- An updated photo of the vulnerable person is required to be uploaded
There is also the opportunity to provide any additional details such as:
- Any updated information about the vulnerable person
- Space is also provided to allow caregivers to add any additional relevant information about the vulnerable person.
This registry gives police quick access to critical information about a registered vulnerable person. It can provide police with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, known routines, favorite attractions, or special needs of the vulnerable individual. This information can assist officers in communicating with, attending a residence of, or dealing with an emergency involving a vulnerable individual.
A Vulnerable Person is defined as a person who due to medical conditions, mental health, or physical conditions, may exhibit patterns of behavior that may pose a danger to that person.
