Henderson County Sheriff Matt Link Talks Implement of TRIAD Program


Henderson County is working to launch a TRIAD program to inform senior citizens in the county with a variety of information topics, explains Sheriff Matt Link:

“Basically it is a program that involves the Sheriff’s Office, the local police department, senior citizen groups, or anybody that is willing to help out seniors in the community. It is a good way to give information to seniors about things as simple as scams going around, how to protect themselves from fraud, identity theft, anything to help protect that person or give them information. We can sign people up and if they want to, this computer program will call that person at any time during the day, whatever time they would like to be called, and if they don’t answer their phone within a certain amount of phone calls, then it would automatically notify our dispatch and dispatch would send somebody out to check on that person.”
