Detective inspector Paul Arnold shows Auburn Police Station Volunteer in Policing member John Howe one of the Next of Kin program key rings.
IT might be just a simple key ring but signing up to Next Of Kin register, helps to give vulnerable and elderly people a little more security and peace of mind.
Personal details about next of kin, doctors and dentists and any medical alerts are recorded on the register and in an emergency, this information can be used to help ambulance officers and police contact a relative or other named person.
A Next Of Kin register is held in all NSW Police stations including the Flemington, Holroyd and Rosehill Local Area Commands and the free program is primarily designed, but not exclusive to, people who live on their own.
To participate, contact the community support officer or the crime prevention officer at your local police station.
