The Sussex County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Division of Senior Services and the Sussex County Chiefs of Police, have formed the Sussex County TRIAD.
Working together, the goals of this partnership are to reduce the criminal victimization of seniors and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to this population. The collaboration provides the opportunity for an exchange of information between the three agencies and senior citizens.
TRIAD programs and services include the following:
senior citizen police academy
senior photo ID program
senior wristband program
making seniors aware of telemarketing fraud
various scams played upon seniors (contractor, mail, etc.)
personal emergency ID cards (refrigerator cards)
talks to seniors on various topics
information tables at senior events
Senior Photo ID Program
The sheriff’s office offers photo identification cards to Sussex County seniors 55 years of age and older. Individual appointments can be scheduled; senior organizations and clubs can also be accommodated, either on-site at our offices or at your location.
Senior Wristband Program
TRIAD will provide black and gold silicone wristbands to every senior citizen of Sussex County free of charge. The bands are engraved with “SC Sheriff 973-579-0888” and a registration number. That number will be used to register all participating senior citizens with the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office should the senior citizen be unable to communicate with emergency personnel.
For more information on any of these programs or to schedule an appointment, contact Hilary Manser at 973.579.0850, ext. 2114.
