TRIAD is a three-way partnership between the Bristol Country Sheriff’s Office, Attleboro Police and Fire Departments, and Attleboro Seniors. The primary goal of triad is to reduce the criminal victimization of older citizens, enhance the delivery of law enforcement services, and improve the quality of life for seniors.

  • U. OK?

The “R.U.O.K.?” Program is a free telephone calling service provided by the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with the Attleboro Police Department and Council on Aging. The program is designed for senior citizens, disabled persons, and shut-ins living in Bristol County. It provides reliable, daily phone assurance, and the comfort and security you need to maintain your independence. “R.U.O.K.?” provides peace of mind for both you and those who care about you. Best of all, it’s as close as your telephone!

  • Yellow Alert

Yellow Alert is a free program designed to ease the concerns of senior and handicapped drivers. Participants fill out an emergency medical information card that is placed in a specially marked envelope and put in the glove compartment of their vehicle. In addition, a bright yellow dot is placed on the back driver-side window. The dot alerts emergency responders that important medical information is on board. Should you become injured in an auto accident and cannot communicate, the yellow alert card will provide emergency personnel with your important medical information.
