TRIAD - History
Virginia Triad: Still Leading the Way for Seniors
The Triad partnership in Virginia, through the Office of the Attorney General, protects our growing elderly population. With the support of the local sheriffs, police chiefs, AARP, and other community services groups Triad works to keep older Virginians informed of their rights.
A major purpose of Triad is to develop, expand and implement effective crime prevention and safety programs for older Virginians.
Triad works at the local level to improve the quality of life for seniors by providing an active exchange of information between local law enforcement and seniors.
Triad was established in 1988 when three national organizations agreed that the elderly could better be protected by cooperative efforts. The relationship was cemented when the organizations - the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), and the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) - signed a cooperative agreement.
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
