TRIAD Safety Programs

The Essex County TRIAD is a community safety initiative that focuses on empowering, educating and improving the safety, security and peace of mind of the senior population.

The goals of TRIAD are to:

  • Reduce criminal activity which targets the senior community.
  • Alleviate senior’s fear of victimization, build confidence and improve their quality of life.
  • Enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to the senior population.

What is TRIAD?

TRIAD consists of a partnership, which involves:


The local Council on Aging

The local Police and Fire

The Sheriff & District Attorney

How Does TRIAD Work?
Lynnfield has established its own TRIAD Council that assessed the needs of our community. It is presided over by a chairperson, vice chairperson and secretary who are active seniors in the community. The establishment of a TRIAD council empowers local seniors to assist members of their community by creating, organizing and operating various programs throughout the community.
