Safe in Tees Valley (SITV) is a charity that creates and supports projects and services that tackle the causes and effects of community safety issues.
SITV has requested funding for a service that provides vulnerable people living with dementia within Cleveland a wristband to wear.
The wristband will have a unique ID which relates to a record held on a secure electronic database and provides next of kin details for each individual.
The database will be held by Cleveland Police’s Control Room. It can be accessed by other emergency services on request.
The main aim is to ensure that people are safer by providing a quick and effective way to locate and trace the individual’s next of kin if they are found.
This will also reduce officers time spent locating missing/vulnerable people’s family. Funding provided would be used to purchase 1500 wristbands and for also advertising the service.
This initiative supports the PCCs priorities of Investing in our Police and Working Together to make Cleveland Safer.
