Reducing Police Call-Outs Involving People With Dementia

We have a contract with the Cumbria Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner with the aim of reducing repeat police calls involving individuals with dementia who haven’t committed a crime.

After attending Dementia Awareness training that specifically related to the role of police personnel and helped front line staff:

  • understand how to approach a person with dementia
  • learn more about the importance of the feelings of a person with dementia
  • communicate more effectively and build trust

Officers get family permission to make a referral to Dignity in Dementia.  We then visit and using our Emotional Trigger Assessment processes, observation and in-depth personal history work, seek to find the triggers that led to the behaviour that resulted in the police call-out.  We then suggest simple strategies to reduce the frequency or avoid the behaviours recurring.
