New Milford seniors are invited to attend a special ceremony Aug. 15 at 9 a.m. to kick off the town's TRIAD program.

The event will be held in the auditorium at New Milford High School on Route 7 South.

Among those in attendance will be Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and New Milford Mayor Pat Murphy, who will sign into agreement the town's TRIAD for senior safety.

TRIAD is a national program that brings together the police, local business and seniors.

New Milford's TRIAD will be a local counterpart of Connecticut's statewide coalition, guiding programs and activities in response to critical issues of safety for older citizens.

In setting up the New Milford TRIAD a Seniors and Law Enforcement Together council, a senior advisory council to establish programs to help seniors in many capacities, was formed.

The local SALT council is made up of chairman William Lowenthal, Sgt. James Dzamko, representing law enforcement, and many volunteers.

The first program SALT will launch is the Yellow Dot program.

To learn more about TRIAD and SALT, attend the Aug. 15 ceremony.
