Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office
TRIAD Program

TRIAD is a cooperative partnership between senior citizens, law enforcement and prosecutors to share information on how seniors can avoid becoming victims of crime and enhance the safety and quality of their lives. The Westmoreland County S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) serves
as volunteer advisory committee for the county's TRIAD program.

Membership on the S.A.L.T. committee is comprised of seniors from the community to include members from Business, healthcare, legal sectors, service clubs and other community service agencies who are not seniors but who have an interest in their safety and security.

Anyone interested in participating on the council is encouraged to contact either Sheriff Balderson at 804-493-8066 or Commonwealth Attorney Julia Sichol at
804-493-0114 You may also send email to: triad@westmoreland-county.org

The national based program was established in 1988 when three organizations agreed that senior citizens 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 (lACP), and the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) - signed a cooperative agreement.

The TRIAD partnership in Virginia is coordinated through the Office of the Attorney General and includes participation from over 225 counties, cities and towns throughout the state.
