Law Enforcement Together


Mission Statement

To develop and implement policies and programs to reduce criminal victimization, promote crime prevention and safety awareness, and serve the needs of the senior community in Peabody.  In addition, the Council will design and support programs to improve the quality of life for our senior citizens.

Empower – give seniors leadership on the Triad Council to determine its direction.

Educate – gather information on criminal activity, and sponsor crime prevention workshops and other programs.

Reach out – reduce fear and increase peace of mind for seniors

Force Links – provide a forum to discuss crime-related needs and concerns of seniors, identify problem areas, and develop and implement community-wide solutions.
