Triad / S.A.L.T. Council

The War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office involve­ment with the Front Royal/Warren Co. TRIAD Coun­cil began in 2001. Our Sheriff’s Office pro­vides a deputy rep­re­sen­ta­tive to attend month­ly meet­ings and assist with fundrais­ing and oth­er pro­gram support.

 The con­cept of TRIAD equates to the fol­low­ing three tiers or tri­an­gle of ser­vice to the senior cit­i­zen community:

  •  Senior Cit­i­zen involve­ment as active mem­bers of the coun­cil. Seniors are pro­vid­ed with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to direct­ly par­tic­i­pate in any or all of the meet­ings and all deci­sion mak­ing processes.
  •  Law Enforce­ment involve­ment pro­vides crime pre­ven­tion edu­ca­tion regard­ing aware­ness and pre­ven­tion of scams, prop­er­ty crimes, fraud, com­mu­ni­ty safe­ty, and home secu­ri­ty strategies.
  •  Sup­port Agen­cies, Orga­ni­za­tions, and Com­mu­ni­ty Part­ners all func­tion as a com­bined con­sul­tant base and or providers of senior sup­port ser­vices with­in the North West­ern Vir­ginia Area. Exam­ples of these include Church­es, War­ren Co. Social Ser­vices, War­ren Co. Senior Cen­ter, Home Instead, and Shenan­doah Area Agency on Aging.

 The con­tin­ued suc­cess of the Front Royal/Warren Coun­ty TRIAD/S.A.L.T. Coun­cil is direct­ly relat­ed to the coop­er­a­tive efforts of the three enti­ties list­ed above.

 S.A.L.T.  (Seniors and Law Enforce­ment Togeth­er) remains a vital affil­i­ate of the TRIAD con­cept “pro­vid­ing a safe­ty net” for many of our most ven­er­a­ble senior cit­i­zens. The pos­i­tive rela­tion­ship that is fos­tered between senior cit­i­zens and law enforce­ment is invaluable. 

 The War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office main­tains involve­ment in TRIAD / S.A.L.T. by pro­vid­ing deputy sup­port and assists by apply­ing for grant fund­ing for Project Life-Line and Auto-Dialer pro­grams. Project Life-Line and the Auto-Dialer Sys­tem pro­vides essen­tial ser­vices to those senior cit­i­zens who live alone and are sus­cep­ti­ble to falls with­in or out­side of their homes, or senior cit­i­zens hav­ing oth­er spe­cial med­ical con­di­tions that require spe­cial mon­i­tor­ing. Life-line and auto-dialer devices are elec­tron­ic units worn by senior cit­i­zens that are eas­i­ly accessed in an emergency. 

Project Life-Line or Auto-Dialer appli­cant pro­cess­ing is accom­plished at the Shenan­doah Area Agency on Aging, at 207 Mos­by Lane, Front Roy­al. Shenan­doah Area Agency on Aging can be reached by email at Go to http://www.shenandoahaaa.com/ or by call­ing 1–540-635‑7141.
