Vulnerable Persons Registry

What is the Vulnerable Person Registry?
The Vulnerable Person Registry is a voluntary program which allows citizens to record vital information pertaining to vulnerable family members or other persons in their care or a Vulnerable Person themselves.

This information will be used by police officers and other support personnel in order to best assist the person, in the event of an incident or interaction.

Register annually
Annual registration is required to keep your form active. It is the responsibility of the applicant to re-submit the form on a yearly basis with any required updates. It is recommended that you re-submit on the registrant’s birthday to make it easier to remember.

Please include a color photograph of the vulnerable person with every registration. All registrations will be confirmed by a member of the Fredericton Police Force.
