TRIAD is a community policing initiative of seniors, law enforcement and service providers to increase safety through education and crime prevention. Its goals are:
To reduce criminal activity which targets older Americans
To alleviate seniors’ fears of victimization, build confidence and improve the quality of life
To enhance delivery of law enforcement services to older persons
TRIAD is implemented by a S.A.L.T. (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council which may be composed of: Seniors, Police, sheriff, and the district attorney, Protective service personnel. The S.A.L.T. Council determines the needs of the community's senior population as they relate to crime prevention and safety awareness, and coordinates activities to meet those needs.
The TRIAD is anchored by our Northwestern District's three top law enforcement officials: Hampshire County Sheriff Robert E. Garvey, Franklin County Sheriff Christopher Donelan and District Attorney David. E. Sullivan.
