Vulnerable Person Registry

Vulnerable Person Registry

The Vulnerable Person Registry allows an improved police response to vulnerable people who may require emergency assistance due to their condition. It expedites the process of locating and assisting vulnerable residents or frequent visitors to York Region by making essential personal information readily available to responding officers.


Examples A vulnerable person is someone with a cognitive, physical, intellectual or developmental disability or other condition which may place them at an increased risk of misadventure. These conditions may include:
  • A tendency to wander
  • The inability to communicate
  • Fascinations or attractions to dangerous locations (water, construction sites etc.)
  • Unusual social responses (fear of strangers, aggressive nature)
