Roanoke County TRIAD
The Roanoke County TRIAD Meeting is the 1st Thursday of every month from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at Friendship Living, located at 397 Hershberger Road.
Reducing Senior-Focused Crime
TRIAD is a cooperative effort of law enforcement agencies (police/fire/sheriffs), senior citizens, and senior organizations, focused on reducing crimes against our most vulnerable citizens: our seniors.
The goal of TRIAD is to reduce the fear of crime and victimization among seniors by increasing awareness of scams and frauds targeting them, strengthening communication between the law enforcement and senior communities, and educating seniors on local and state resources that are available in their community.
This goal is accomplished through
- Community collaborations
- Marketing the TRIAD concept to non-participating localities
- Providing a support mechanism to current local TRIAD groups
- Speaking engagements
- Targeted training for seniors and law enforcement practitioners
Virginia TRIAD Success
Virginia TRIAD has also been recognized by the National Association of TRIADs, Inc. as having the highest number of active local groups nationwide and is the only state in the nation with a statewide coordinated office at the Executive Level of government.
