Wednesday, April 11, Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian announced the new Middlesex Sheriff’s Office TRIAD Program at an event with Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone. The event took place at the Winter Hill Yacht Club with the Somerville Council on Aging.
The new TRIAD Program, which will kick-off in Somerville and spread to other Middlesex County communities, is a partnership between the Sheriff’s Office, local Councils on Aging, non-profit organizations and local public safety officials. Sheriff Koutoujian worked closely with Fire Chief Kevin Kelleher, Police Chief Thomas Pasquarello and Mayor Curtatone to ensure this program helps strengthen public safety in Somerville.
TRIAD focuses on empowering senior citizens to recognize fraudulent behavior; hosts educational events; and provides tips and resources on how seniors can stay safe and avoid being the object of criminal behavior.
