Gwent Police launch 'Trinity Protocol'
Published: 20 January 2021
The Trinity Protocol is an opportunity for parents/carers, or the individual to register details if they have additional needs such as Autism, Global Delay, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning Difficulties etc on Gwent Police systems. It will allow Officers to be better informed of the individual and help them to adapt their response to support the person should they need to defuse a threatening situation peacefully, find a missing person or communicate with a witness / victim of crime.
The protocol is a risk reduction tool and named after Trinity Fields Additional Needs School where Gwent Police introduced their first Police Cadets Scheme in an additional needs setting which was the first of its kind in the UK.
How do I register? It is a simple form 📄 which contains vital information about the person that can be added to our police systems with a recent photograph 📸. This will allow staff to have the important information available to them that could save precious time and enable staff to help reassure the person if they need assistance or in the event they go missing.
The person does not have to have come into contact with the police previously to complete a form, if you believe them to be at risk please contact us via email 📧: firstname.lastname@example.org to request a form.
If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch, Community Group or Support Service and would like to find out more about the Trinity Protocol please get in touch.
