Three triangles symbolize a working relationship between leaders from law enforcement, seniors, and providers.

The sole purpose of Triad is to promote senior safety and to reduce the unwarranted fear of crime that seniors often experience.

TRIAD is a three way commitment among the National Sheriff's Association, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the American Association of Retired Persons to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to older persons.

TRIAD works to improve the quality of life for seniors by providing the opportunity for the exchange of information between law enforcement and senior citizens.

Locally, TRIAD is implemented by our Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) Council. The S.A.L.T. Council is designed to address crime related issues that impact elderly, and it plays an active role in crime prevention and victim assistance services to our seniors.
