Massachusetts, through the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and MEMA, and in partnership with the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, has launched a statewide See Something Say SomethingTM public awareness campaign to encourage the public to report suspicious behaviors to the police. See Something Say SomethingTM was a program launched by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2010 to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity, specifically behaviors indicative of or a precursor to terrorism, to state and local law enforcement agencies. The initiative highlights the important role the public and local information play in maintaining a safe environment and preventing terrorism. Remember if you see something suspicious report it to your local police department or call 9-1-1.
In accordance with Massachusetts General Law, unclaimed and abandoned property will be sold by means of an online auction by PROPERTY ROOM.com (www.propertyroom.com). The property may include bicycles, jewelry, televisions, computer equipment, electronics, tools, watches, cameras, apparel, and other unclaimed property. The items to be auctioned are in "AS IS" condition and are in no way guaranteed or under warranty by the Ashland Police Department or the Town of Ashland.
Any person who believes they may have unclaimed property being held by the Ashland Police Department (or is currently up for auction), should contact the department immediately at 1-508-881-1212 to determine if they have a claim to the property (proof of ownership will be required).
