Police Launch Program for Wanderers

BOSTON -- Boston police unveiled a program Saturday to help responders find those with special needs who tend to wander off.
The program, dubbed North Star Personal Alert and developed by an officer whose son is autistic, allows parents and guardians to provide police with photos of their loved ones and information that will help authorities find them if they go missing.
North Star is geared toward children with autism and adults with Alzheimer’s disease, police said, though it is not limited to those groups.
