Seniors, Check Out North Andover TRIAD
The following was submitted by the North Andover Senior Center.
The North Andover TRIAD is a community safety initiative that focuses on empowering, educating and improving the safety, security and peace of mind of our senior population.
The goal of TRIAD is to reduce criminal activity which targets our senior community, alleviate senior’s fear of victimization, build confidence and improve the quality of their life, and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to the senior population.
TRIAD consists of a partnership which involves the Sheriff & District Attorney, the Police and Fire Chief, the Council on Aging and supportive services in each community. Individual communities establish their own TRIAD Council that assesses and addresses the specific needs particular to their senior community. The TRIAD Council is presided over by a chairperson, vice chairperson and secretary who are active seniors in the community.
The establishment of TRIAD councils empowers local seniors to assist members of their community by creating, organizing and operating various programs throughout the community. North Andover TRIAD has monthly meetings and is always pleased to have new members. We typically meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 11:00 a.m. at the North Andover Senior Center.
Throughout the month of June, we will be traveling to elderly housing locations to bring our programs of senior safety, fire safety, health care proxies, etc. These programs will be held at 10 a.m. If you wish to attend a meeting, please call Donna Delaney at 978-688-9560.
