Peel Regional Police has a Vulnerable Persons' Registry (VPR) that helps police and the community locate missing people. The registry allows the caregivers and/or parents of vulnerable people to submit vital information that will be used by emergency services during a crisis situation (e.g. person is missing, hostile behavior, etc.)

Who Can Register

Those eligible to participate are people who because of a medical (e.g. Alzheimer's diseases, Autism Spectrum Disorder, brain injury, etc.), mental health or physical condition may pose a danger to themselves and/or others.

The most common types of people who sign up for this registry include but are not limited to the following:

  • Elderly who have a tendency to wander.
  • Those with an inability to communicate because of a mental health or other illness.
  • Those with strong fascinations or attractions (water, construction sites, etc.).
  • Those with poor social responses (fear of strangers, aggression).

How to Register

To register online, you must provide the following for the person being registered:

  • Name.
  • Date of birth.
  • Physical descriptors (e.g. scars, birthmarks etc.).
  • Contact information.
  • Special needs.
  • Methods of approach if found.
  • Objects of attraction that will aid in drawing the person in.
  • Two pictures: a photo of the person’s face, from the shoulders up and a full body photo, which may show any assistive devices: cane, walker, wheelchair, etc.

Your information will only be used by police personnel for the purposes of this program.
