TRIAD Program

TRIAD is a three-way commitment involving law enforcement agencies, older citizens and community agencies that serve the older population. TRIAD works to improve the quality of life for senior citizens by providing an opportunity for the exchange of information between law enforcement and older persons. They have agreed to work together to reduce the criminal victimization of the elderly and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to older persons. TRIAD can also reduce unwarranted fear of crime.

Advisory Council

Sherburne County TRIAD has been working, through an advisory council called SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) for twenty years.
