(Washington, DC) The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs’ Office of Consumer Protection is taking the lead in reducing crime against seniors by spearheading the District's first Triad agreement on February 7, 2007.
Triad emerged in 1988 as representatives from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) came together to define a way to keep seniors safe from crime.
Triad aims to reduce crimes against the elderly and to reduce seniors' fear of crime. Triad is not an acronym; it's a partnership among three groups: senior citizens, senior service providers and law enforcement officials.
