Seniors and Law Enforcement Together
The Cherokee Triad and S.A.L.T. Council was implemented in July of 2006 by The City of Canton Police Department to represent all communities in our county. This Council and organization is a partnership with the Canton Police Department, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department, the Woodstock Police Department and many different organizations including AARP, tasked with identifying and developing programs to address the needs and concerns of seniors in our community.
• Abuse of the Elderly • Personal Injury • Drug Interaction and theft • Prescription Fraud • Suspicious Persons • Home Repair Scams • Vandalism • Drug sale/use near home • Consumer Fraud • Purse Snatching • Burglary • Problems Associated with aging • Traffic Problems
TRIAD looks to alleviate fear of victimization, build confidence, enhance the delivery of law enforcement services and improve the overall quality of life to our senior population. TRIAD also works to educate individuals and businesses providing services to seniors.
S.A.L.T.’s objectives are based on those of the National Association of Triads, Inc. and is a non-profit organization (501©(3)). We are dedicated to this cause and will work hard to build a stronger community in Canton and Cherokee County.
Please join us! If you would like more information on joining S.A.L.T. or becoming a TRIAD member please contact us, we would love to hear from you!

“Choose to Refuse”
Anyone can be a victim, regardless of age or experience. And the recent scam-targeting of senior citizens has again moved protection measures to the forefront of our minds.
In an effort to enhance the personal safety of our neighbors and community, the Holly Springs Police Department is offering a free 2-hour “Choose to Refuse - Safe Citizen” Seminar scheduled for Tuesday April 21, 2015. This worthwhile program will present information on various topics to include: how to spot a fraud on the telephone or your doorstep, popular scams, on-line/Internet risks and scam prevention, protecting personal information, safe meeting places, securing your home, street safety tips, and more. Senior citizens and parents alike will greatly benefit by providing this information to their family members, like grandchildren and children.
This seminar is offered at no cost. For more information or to register please contact:
