The Greater Sudbury Police Service offers a service, via database, where people can register if they have a physical, mental health, cognitive or medical condition that may require special attention in an emergency. If you are a vulnerable person or caregiver to a vulnerable person, you can provide information, which will be protected and used only by first responders, to help you or your loved one during a crisis situation.

Greater Sudbury Police, Sudbury Fire Department and Sudbury Emergency Medical Service will have access to the information and it will be securely stored by the Greater Sudbury Police Service.
