We have received a letter from the Nepean Police Area Command regarding the Next of Kin Register. This program is designed for people who live alone and are isolated because they may be elderly, frail from sickness, suffer from a mental health issue or live with a physical disability. The Next of Kin program is intended to assist the Police to locate a person who has a personal relationship with the registered person if they need help.
The Next of Kin program enables people living alone to record their emergency contact details with the NSW Police Force. The program records the nominated Next of Kin, the contact details for the person's doctor and other relevant contacts. In an emergency the right people will be contacted. The person is provided with a key ring as a reminder that the person is on the register.
