TRIAD and SALT
What is TRIAD?
TRIAD is short for The Right Information And Direction. It is responsible for the formation of the Cass County SALT Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together). A joint resolution indicates concern for the plight of older Americans and the advantages of involving seniors in appropriate volunteer tasks within law enforcement agencies.
TRIAD developed from a concern about the unmet needs of seniors, who are a rapidly increasing segment of the population. It provides public education and local projects to meet these needs.
Locally, TRIAD consists of Senior Citizens, the National Sheriff's Association, and Service providers.
TRIAD functions on the national, state, and local levels, doing real work at the local level. It aims to meet the following goals and objectives:
SALT (Seniors & Law Enforcement Together) is designed to work both

recommend programs to assist seniors, including opportunities to involve
volunteers in the achievement of TRIAD's objectives.
All interested persons are welcome to join the S.A.L.T. Council. It includes:
