How Does Triad Work?
Interested groups form an advisory board or council to accomplish the goals of the local Triad. This board is sometimes called the S.A.L.T. Committee (Seniors, And Law Enforcement Together). Some counties have one county-wide board, while others may have one in each community with periodic coordination between groups. Most Triads advocate for crime prevention education, reassurance strategies, elder abuse prevention and other safety topics.
