TRIAD is a community based policing initiative between seniors, Law Enforcement, and service providers of the community to increase safety through education and crime prevention.
In 1992, TRIAD was started in Two Rivers to meet the concerns and needs of our senior population. The Two Rivers chapter of TRIAD was one of the charter organizations in Wisconsin. The concept of TRIAD is to have law enforcement and seniors working together to make our community a safe and secure place to live. TRIAD is not an acronym; it simply represents a group of three, with the three main components of our organization being, the senior population of our community, law enforcement, and the service providers of our community. TRIAD is a non-profit organization made up of volunteer participants.
Although TRIAD was started here in 1992, TRIAD is not a new concept and there are many TRIAD organizations throughout the United States. Triad's purpose focuses on creating partnerships to address the issues that affect older citizens. Our goal is to increase the safety and security of our community by a reduction in the criminal victimization of the elderly. We accomplish this through education and by empowering seniors to find solutions through programs and activities or by utilizing the support of the various resources and agencies in the community.
Your local TRIAD has been involved and benefited the community in a number of ways. TRIAD has sponsored several conferences and meetings, including the 2006 State Conference and the local City Council Candidate Forums. TRIAD has sponsored and coordinated the enforcement of the Two Rivers house numbering Ordinance, sponsors the Neighborhood Watch Program, sponsors the Senior Emergency Car Kit Program, and created and continues to sponsor the Victim Assistance Program. TRIAD of Two Rivers is also involved in many local events such as Two Rivers Community Care Day, the Senior Health Fair, and the Manitowoc County Crime Prevention Day.
