East Lyme has become the 55th Connecticut community to launch a local chapter of TRIAD, a national coalition that aims to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly.

The program brings together law enforcement, community senior services, and the private sector to work on ways that help aging Americans stay on their toes and avoid falling for increasingly common scams aimed at them. Under the TRIAD banner, communities may survey town residents to see what is needed, set up health and safety programs, and carry out other activities under the guidance of a volunteer board of directors, called a SALT Council, for Seniors and Law Enforcers working Together.

Other area towns that have formed TRIADs include Waterford, Ledyard, and Stonington.
For more information or to report suspicious activities, call this non-emergency number for the East Lyme Police: 739-5900.
