Triad is a community partnership between seniors and senior service agencies (Council on Aging), law enforcement (Halifax Police & Fire Departments), and public safety providers (Plymouth County Sheriff's Department). The primary goal of the "Triad" concept is to reduce criminal activity targeted at seniors and to enhance the delivery of law enforcement and public safety services to senior citizens. The Triad concept is implemented in each town through a S.A.L.T. Council,(Seniors And Law Enforcement Together).
Most recently, TRIAD has introduced the SafetyNet Service Program to Halifax residents of any age (children - senior population). This is time tested equipment and proven electronic search and rescue equipment, which gives peace of mind to caregivers of loved ones at risk of wandering and becoming lost if afflicted with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Autism or any other cognitive disorder. The SafetyNet client wears a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. The caregiver notifies LoJack if the client is missing and a highly trained search and rescue team responds and begins the search with a locator tracking system. The Halifax TRIAD's goal is to help with the cost of the program whenever possible.
Once a month the Council on Aging in conjunction with the Halifax Police have a medication collection where households can drop off unused, unwanted and outdated medications to the Council on Aging or the Police Station. If you have questions please do not hesitate to call the COA or Police Department.
There is a basket at the Council on Aging, labeled LION's CLUB, which is for used glasses. Please bring your used glasses and eyewear that will be refurbished for others in need of glasses. Thanks for thinking of us!
