Triad is a nationally recognized grassroots program established to promote a three-way commitment among county police departments, sheriff’s offices, and older citizens to work together to reduce criminal victimization and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to senior citizens. Triads work to improve the quality of life and provide an opportunity for the exchange of information between public safety providers and recipients. The Triad concept of public safety receives support from the National Sheriff’s Association, the International of Association of Chiefs of Police, and the American Association of Retired Persons.
S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together)
S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) is an advisory council referred to as SALT. These councils work with leaders of the community and organizations familiar with senior issues in concert with representatives from law enforcement, to exchange information, keep abreast of mutual concerns, and disseminate information relative to the safety of our seniors.
Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute participates in many crime prevention coalitions, partnership, committees and networks at the national, state, and local level. The Institute supports such organizations as the Maryland Triad/S.A.L.T. Network that meets quarterly.
