Boston Police are offering a free program for people who have relatives who tend to wander off.
For instance, your relative may have Alzheimer's, or be a child bent on running away.
Under the North Star Personal Alert Program, police will have a photo and description of the person. If he or she goes missing, the information can quickly help officers locate the person. Further, if the person has trouble communicating, as often happens in these situations, police will be aware.
