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. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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 2020 VIRGINIA TRIAD CONFERENCE:

 

Like so many of you, our office has been looking forward to celebrating twenty-five years of Triad in Virginia at this year’s Statewide Triad Conference. Originally scheduled for April 27th – 29th in Williamsburg, the conference has unfortunately had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We have worked with our venue, Great Wolf Lodge, to reserve a rescheduled date of Monday, October 26th – Wednesday, October 28th. If you registered for the conference previously, you remain registered for the rescheduled October dates; however, if you need a refund of your registration, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible.

 

While we have reserved a new conference date with Great Wolf Lodge, the possibility remains that a gathering of 200+ people, including many seniors who may be more vulnerable to infection, may not be reasonable even in late October. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will make decisions based on guidance from the Virginia Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and others.

 

We are not currently accepting any additional scholarship applications.

 

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please reach out to Shannon Freeman, Director of Programs and Outreach, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

We remain hopeful that we will see you in October at Virginia's premiere conference on senior crime prevention!
