Triad

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.


As Attorney General, Robert F. McDonnell has pledged to continue the mission of Triad, which started in Virginia in 1995 and now over 200 counties, cities, and towns have signed a Triad Cooperative Agreement.


To find out what your community is doing with Triad, contact Sheriff Vanessa R. Crawford at (804) 733-2369 or by email at sheriffcrawford@petersburg-so.com, or email Jennifer Aulger, Director of Triad and Citizen Outreach at JAulgur@oag.state.va.us.
