The Vulnerable Persons Database is the next step in FSPD's commitment to de-escalation and getting mentally impaired and other at-risk individuals the help and ongoing assistance they need. The service is entirely voluntary, and it will not be used to track criminal behavior. It is simply to provide FSPD Officers quick access to vital information on a vulnerable person who could be at risk.

A vulnerable person is an individual who could be in need of community care services by reason of mental illness, developmental disability/delay, other disability, age, illness, or emotional disturbance and who is or may be unable to take care of or protect themselves against significant harm or exploitation.
