TRIAD is a program philosophy. A philosophy that focuses on reducing criminal victimization of older persons and enhancing the delivery of law enforcement services to these individuals. TRIAD truly believes that senior citizens should be able to feel safe in their own community. The philosophy sees law enforcement, older volunteers, and social and aging network professionals coming together to assess the needs and concerns of seniors in their community.
The original choice of the word TRIAD", which means "group of three", was chosen because it represents the National Sheriff's Association, the International Association of the Chiefs of Police, and the American Association of Retired Persons. These three founding groups signed a cooperative agreement to encourage growth of local TRIADs and to sponsor annual meetings to provide information and support local community leadership. The TRIAD program at the local level is not limited to just these three organizations.
