Police Department Offers “Good Morning, Andover” Program

Checks on safety of enrolled individuals

By Joe Mahoney
Registration form for new Andover Police program “Good Morning, Andover!” Forms may also be obtained by calling 603 735-5777.

This service is designed to check the safety and welfare of elderly or handicapped individuals within our community who live alone or have special needs. When a person decides to enroll in this program, the person will sign a contract agreeing to phone the Andover Police Department each day, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 AM and 11 AM. The person will just need to identify himself or herself and state they are checking in as part of the Good Morning, Andover Program.

If the police have not heard from a person enrolled in this program by 11 AM, contact will be attempted by telephone. If there is no answer, a police officer will be dispatched to the residence to check the safety and welfare of the person. 

Persons enrolled in the program will be required to supply the police department with a key to his or her residence. The key will be maintained in a secure location at the police department.

A copy of the enrollment form may be downloaded from the Beacon’s website at AndoverBeacon.com, or by calling the police department. Please review and contact the police department to make arrangements to complete this form in the presence of an officer or other staff member.

Consider joining today to continue this community service. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Andover Police Department at 603 735-5777.
