Older adults comprise the most rapidly growing segment of our population. One in eight people are already 65 or older. This statistic represents more than 33.6 million older adults. With increased life expectancy, new issues for the criminal justice system have arisen.
TRIAD has been developed to reduce the criminal victimization of our older adults and to enhance the delivery of resources and awareness to our older population.
TRIAD assesses the needs of each community separately.
A community that may have a serious crime problem can utilize their TRIAD to focus on crime prevention and victim assistance.
A community that does not have a serious crime problem can utilize TRIAD to concentrate on programs, activities and public safety initiatives to benefit their entire community.
