To assist older citzens combat and avoid being
victimized is the product of several very
important collaborative efforts. One of the most
importantof these has been taking place on the
local level whenever the leaders of three critcal
groupls - police, the sheriff;s office, and older
or retired person - have agreed to work together
in Triad programs to reduce criminal victimization
of older citizens and enhance the delivery of law
enforcement services to these individuals.

Introduction

Triad - A Concept in Action

Triad means a three-way commitment among the chief(s) of police in a county, the sheriff and older or retired leaders. They agree to work together to reduce the criminial victimization of the elderly and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to older persons.

A major purpose of a Triad is to develop, expand and implement effective crime prevention and education programs for older community memebers. Activities centered on both pre-victimization (preventive) and post-victimization (victim/witness assistance) aspects.

Triad work to improve the quality of life for seniors. By providing an opportunity for the exchange of information between law enforcement and older person, Triad can also focus on reducing unwarranted fear of crime.
