Senior Safety is Key
TRIAD of Jefferson County is an organization built on cooperation between senior community members, the District Attorney, law enforcement agencies, and senior service providers. Each are concerned about the safety and security of seniors living in Jefferson County.
TRIAD is a national organization that began in 1988 with the signing of a cooperative agreement between the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the National Sheriffs' Association. There are numerous local chapters of TRIAD located throughout the United States.
The purpose of TRIAD is to develop and implement crime prevention programs for older adults. Areas include home safety and wellness, victim assistance, elder abuse prevention, and current fraud trends.
The District Attorney and local law enforcement agencies are committed to the safety and well-being of senior citizens and remain actively involved with TRIAD. Many senior services organizations, predominantly non-profit, have made a commitment to TRIAD. TRIAD recruits and encourages older adults of Jefferson County to serve as a voice for seniors in the partnership.
TRIAD holds public meetings each month on senior security topics, including:
- Preventing Falls
- Driving Safety Tips
- Protecting Seniors from Fraud
