APD looking for signs of unrest on Election Day

ASHLAND — An Ashland Police Department cadet will be stationed at the ballot box throughout the day Tuesday to ensure drop-offs go smoothly on Election Day, APD Chief Tighe O’Meara said.

“We have our antenna up for signs of trouble coming,” O’Meara said. “We haven’t received any indication that there’s any trouble coming our way.”

O’Meara said information gathered through partnerships with intelligence-gathering entities indicates no threat stemming from election results is imminent, but APD will watch closely for signs of unrest that is threatening to the public.

O’Meara requested that anyone peacefully protesting downtown maintain respect for differing opinions.
