TRIAD

DEFINITION OF A TRIAD (Download Triad Senior Living Survey).
National community poling initiative wherein law enforcement professionals, seniors and community groups partner to meet the crime-safety needs of seniors.

MISSION STATEMENT
The City of Brentwood TRIAD council is committed to improving the quality of life for the senior citizens of our community by enhancing their health, safety and security through communication, education and outreach.

GOALS
Reduce crimes against the elderly and reduce the unwarranted fear of crime that seniors often experience.

SENIOR FACTS AND WHY THEY BECOME VICTIMS
About 31% of seniors (10.5 million) live alone.  Persons 85 years and older are the fastest growing segment of seniors.  Americans 65 years old and older are a fast growing demographic group.  In 2011, the baby boom generation will begin to turn 65.  By 2030, it is estimated that there will be 70.3 million seniors.  This is equivalent to 1 in 5 Americans.  Seniors will live longer.  Eventual declines in cognitive and physical functions could make them more vulnerable to victimization.

BENEFITS OF A TRIAD

  • Opens communication between public safety personnel, adult services and seniors
  • Allows seniors to voice their concerns about crime and safety
  • Provides an avenue for active senior volunteers to help others
  • Reduces senior isolation, a contributing factor to senior victimization
  • Strengthens the ties amongst community groups
  • Builds a sense of community
  • Expands law enforcement personnel capabilities within the community
