The Philomena Protocol is an initiative to help locate and safely return a missing child.
It has been highlighted as best practice and adopted by Forces across the country.
The protocol focuses on looked after young people that live in residential homes, but the Force is hoping to extend its reach more widely in 2021.
The protocol works because information is available to all involved, which makes the process of finding the young person more efficient.
Care home staff should complete part A of the 'person at risk of missing form' and also the 'risk assessed locations' form.
These forms should be kept electronically and updated if any information changes.
Form - Part A
Form - Part B
Risk Assessed Locations Contacts
