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.

 

UPDATE REGARDING THE VIRGINIA TRIAD CONFERENCE:

Like so many of you, our office was looking forward to celebrating twenty-five years of Virginia Triad at the 2020 Statewide Triad Conference in Williamsburg. Originally scheduled for the spring of 2020 and then postponed until late October and then rescheduled for spring of 2021, we find ourselves in the difficult position of cancelling the conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We remain hopeful that we will be able to host a future Triad conference later this year or early 2022 and are working with our venue, Great Wolf Lodge, for potential dates, paying close attention to COVID numbers, vaccination progress, CDC guidelines, and state restrictions on gathering sizes. If you registered for the conference previously and have not yet received a refund, or if you have questions / need additional information, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

We definitely look forward to spending time with all of our Triad partners once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we hope you are staying safe.
