Triad is a nationally recognized grassroots program established in 1988 to promote a three-way commitment among county police departments, sheriff’s offices, and older citizens to work together to reduce criminal victimization and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to senior citizens.  Triads work to improve the quality of life and provide an opportunity for the exchange of information between public safety providers and recipients. The Triad concept of public safety receives support from the National Sheriff’s Association, the International of Association of Chiefs of Police, and the American Association of Retired Persons.
