The Silver Alert Program was created in 2010 to provide support to family members caring for adults afflicted with serious memory impairments such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and who are at risk for wandering. This program provides families with the ability to take a proactive approach toward protecting a loved one by registering them with the local police department.
As of 2019 this program has been implemented in Hull through a collaborative effort with the Hull Executive Office of Elder Affairs, the Hull Police Department, and The Council on Aging.
To participate in the program you may stop by the front desk at the Hull Police Department and complete a “Wandering Worksheet,” meet with the outreach staff at the Hull Senior Center, or download and fill out a “Wandering Worksheet” and submit it in person to Detective Andrew Reilly at the police station.
There is no cost to participate in this program. The Hull Silver Alert Program collects specific information about a potential missing person along with photo identification. All information is kept confidential and is to be used in the event that your family member is reported missing.
This preventive action will help some of our most vulnerable citizens stay safe.
