The Roanoke City Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce their partnership with Virginia’s Office of the Attorney General in sponsoring The Roanoke City TRIAD. TRIAD is dedicated to improving the quality of life for senior community members by developing, expanding and implementing effective crime prevention and educational programs.
TRIAD is a term that refers to the three national organizations that agreed that crime-related needs of senior citizens could be met by a cooperative effort. These three organizations include, American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). A cooperative agreement was signed by these groups in 1988.
Locally, TRIAD is an alliance between law enforcement and older Virginians with the goal of sharing information with the focus on reducing unwarranted fear of crime by increasing awareness of scams and frauds that target them. The Roanoke TRIAD will strive to reduce the criminal victimization of senior citizens and enhance the relationship with law enforcement by delivering services to elderly persons through speaking engagements, community collaborations and targeted trainings.
TRIAD events are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the every month at Harmony Services.
