Seniors: Virginia Triad Resources

Triad LogoTriad 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. To find out if your area has or is considering forming a Triad, contact your local sheriff or police or email the Director of Programs and Community Outreach at This email address is being protected from spambots.

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 speaking engagements, community collaborations, targeted trainings for seniors and law enforcement practitioners, providing a support mechanism to current local Triad groups, and marketing the Triad concept to non-participating localities.  Today, Virginia has over 200 cities, counties, and towns with signed Triad agreements.  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.

The Virginia Triad Office can provide information and resources to Triad chapters across the Commonwealth. We can also assist you in organizing your Triad, planning ideas and programs for your seniors, and provide training opportunities for law enforcement, senior volunteers, and community groups.


On behalf of Attorney General Mark R. Herring, the OAG Programs and Outreach Team was proud to host nearly 200 attendees from across the Commonwealth at this year's Triad Conference, Virginia's premiere conference on senior crime prevention, at Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg May 1st – 3rd. This year's conference included a pre-conference workshop on fitness at any age/mobility level, a welcome reception, a visit from area law enforcement leaders and Attorney General Herring, keynotes on music and memory, successful aging, and community engagement, and a wide array of breakout sessions covering scams and frauds, opioid abuse and seniors, human trafficking, seniors and bullying, and many other topics. Thank you to each of our wonderful speakers for sharing their time and expertise with our conference participants.
