Vulnerable Persons Registry

This online registry is voluntary and provides the North Bay Police Service with direct access to critical information about a vulnerable person in the event of an emergency. Registrants may be living with autism, with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, with an acquired brain injury or an intellectual disability. As well as emergency contact information, the registry captures full descriptions of the individuals and includes their routines, favorite attractions, method of communication and other special needs. This information will be stored in our secure records management system, which is accessible to other police services across the country.
