Program Description


“Seniors are known to have the most disposable income in our country. Most elder abuse has a financial basis, Therefore having a good rapport with local banks is key for law enforcers.”

The National Association of Triads is a partnership of three organizations including law enforcement, senior citizens, and community groups pushing for senior safety and elder abuse prevention. Each community triad aims to trian law enforcement, sheriff's offices, police departments, and other communities agencies on how to detect and prevent elder abuse and other crimes against the elderly

The National Association of Triads assists communities in organizing their own Triad program by providing ideas and training materials.

The association is involved with the Celebrate Safe Communities Initiative administered by the National Crime Prevention Council which provides free resources and support for local crime prevention efforts, and crime prevention activities that help keep communities safe.

The National Association of Triads is also involved in helping to promote the US Treasury Department's Go Direct campaign that encourages citizens and seniors to have their government benefit checks deposited directly into their account rather than receiving a paper check which increases the risk of lost or stolen checks and helps protect against financial crimes.
Seniors also enjoy the convenience of not having to go and cash or deposit a check, something that may be difficult for them.

The National Association of Triads suggests that volunteers promote the US Treasury Department's Go Direct campaign by:

-Distributing and display campaign materials in lobbies
-Include information about direct deposit in workshops or public speaking engagements geared toward seniors
-Post campaign information on websites and social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter

The National Sheriffs Association provides law enforcement education and training.
