Marlborough TRIAD Brings Community Together

By Shari L. Covino

It’s official. Marlborough has become a part of a program in Connecticut that will curtail criminal victimization and enhance delivery of law enforcement services within the community for its elderly citizens.

The Town’s Senior Center was host to pomp and circumstance on Tuesday, becoming a part of the State’s TRIAD program. TRIAD, the 30th program of its kind formed within the state of Connecticut, began some ten years ago out of an idea to help the community in Bridgeport. Now the program has consistently progressed over time, which includes subprograms like the Yellow Dot Program within its structure. Town officials signed an Agreement and commitment on May 3rd that brings together law enforcement, seniors, and the business community.

First Selectman Nancy S. Bader welcomed Guest Speaker Attorney General Richard L. Blumenthal to Marlborough who then thanked everyone that had a part in the TRIAD program, lit the blue candle representing law enforcement, and signed the TRIAD Agreement. Other Town officials also signed the Agreement.

“Citizen soldiers working on the front lines against crime, for public safety, and public health, that is what the TRIAD program is all about,” says Attorney General Blumenthal as he spoke to enthusiastic guests at the event on Tuesday, May 3rd.

The TRIAD logo represents three community groups coming together as the program is designed to prevent victimization of the elderly. It brings the business community along with the entire community together working with programs that help seniors to age with dignity and safety.
