TRIAD

TRIAD- Knox County TRIAD for Senior Citizens- "Reducing Crime Against the Elderly" is the goal of this service oriented organization. This county wide program was established to provide training to help our elderly population to protect themselves against bodily injury, frauds occurring in our area as well as to provide a clearinghouse of information for our senior population.

A major purpose of TRIAD is to develop, expand and implement effective crime prevention and education programs for the older community members. Activities center on both pre - victimization (preventive) and post victimization ( victim / witness assistance) aspects.

Triad works to improve the quality of life for senior citizens. By providing an opportunity for the exchange of information between law enforcement and older persons, Triad can also focus on reducing unwarranted fear of crime.
