The Ashland Police Department is continuing its "Are You OK?" program for seniors and other residents who live alone and would like to have the added assurance of regular check-ins by the police.
Detective Joseph Magnani says that about 30 residents are currently enrolled in the program, in which residents pick a time of day for a computerized system to automatically call them; if they don't answer, a police officer will be dispatched to make sure that everything is OK. To sign up, call the Ashland Council on Aging at 508-881-0140 ext. 10.
