In 1988, the American Association of Retired Person (AARP), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Sheriff's Association (NSA) signed a cooperative agreement to the address the crime prevention needs of older citizens. Their primary goals are to reduce the criminal victimization of older citizens and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to this population
TRIAD consists of a partnership that involves AARP, the Culpeper Police Department, and the Culpeper County Sheriff's Office who work together. TRIAD provides the opportunity for an exchange of information between law enforcement and senior citizens. It focuses on reducing unwarranted fear of crime and improving the quality of life for seniors. A TRIAD is tailored to meet the needs of each community and is guided by a senior advisory council (S.A.L.T.). TRIAD is an integral part of community policing. Through TRIAD seniors can obtain cell phones for emergency use, home smoke detectors, and emergency beacons.
