This free registry is open to caregivers of, and individuals themselves who may be considered vulnerable in public situations. The Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR) is a community based initiative in partnership with the Guelph Police Service, Guelph-Wellington Community Living and many other local community partners. The registry promotes sharing of information between vulnerable persons, the people who support them and the police. This information will assist officers when responding to an emergency involving the vulnerable individual. The registry provides quick access to critical information about a registered person, such as who to call in an emergency, a detailed physical description, and any particular sensitivities that the person may experience. Registration is completely voluntary. The database is to help alleviate safety concerns for those that are vulnerable in our community.
Due to changes in RCMP query procedures, the Vulnerable Sector portion of a police check may require having your fingerprints taken. If this is the case, you will receive a letter from us in the mail. The VS query uses your date of birth and your gender only, no name. If this is required, you will need to call us and book an appointment for fingerprints.
