CASS COUNTY TRIAD



WHAT IS TRIAD?

TRIAD is a community-based Partnership between law enforcement agencies and agencies and individuals involved in elderly issues. The goal of Triad is to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly by bringing together community agencies to form a relationship of trust with the elderly, enabling them to jointly recognize and solve problems.

All interested persons are invited to join the Triad group.

WHY IS TRIAD NECESSARY?

Older Americans comprise the most rapidly growing segment of the population. One in every eight Americans is already age 65 or older.

Increased life expectancy is leading to new issues and problems for the criminal justice system. Most communities are experiencing a dramatic increase in the number of older persons, thus increasing crime against the elderly and frauds and scams targeted for seniors.

Triads work together to devise a better way to reduce crimes and scams against elderly and enhance services and communications between older citizens and law enforcement.

WHAT DO TRIADS DO?

EDUCATE: By sponsoring crime prevention and public education for older adults.

ASSIST: By recruiting and training volunteers to assist police departments, sheriff’s departments and other agencies.

SUPPORT: By identifying community resources and providing referrals to older persons to help reduce fear and lend moral support.

UNITE: By involving elderly, law enforcement, community agencies and individuals to identify problem areas in their communities.

S.A.L.T. COUNCIL: A VITAL PART OF TRIAD

The Advisory group which carries our TRIAD activities is the S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together). Members of most S.A.L.T. groups include:

Sheriff’s Offices, Local Police, Council on Aging, RSVP, business and community representatives, senior citizens, other agencies and community representatives who are interested in the welfare of seniors.

Many roles in TRIAD are filled by volunteers, of which only a limited number may actually be S.A.L.T. members. Ideas from the elderly as well as their time and efforts as volunteers, are vital to TRIAD success. S.A.L.T. members, working with experienced, capable older volunteers, create effective solutions for many problems faced by the elderly.
