TRIAD is a collaboration between the Hanson Police Department, Hanson’s senior citizen community under the guidance and direction of Mary Collins, Hanson’s Executive Director of Elder Affairs, and support services such as the Hanson Fire Department, Sheriff’s Department, District Attorney’s Office and citizen volunteers or related organizations. TRIAD strives to reduce crimes committed against seniors and the unwarranted fear of crime that seniors often experience.
Since the adoption of the TRIAD agreement in 2003, a Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) Council has been established. This local SALT Council, which includes seniors from the community, works closely with the Hanson Council for Elder Affairs and the Hanson Police Department to help ensure that public safety professionals and volunteers work together to reduce crimes committed against the elderly, increase crime reporting among this population segment and address and improve senior quality of life issues.
