TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing put together a 25 member committee to discuss the creation of a local triad.
A triad's main responsibility is to promote older adult safety and reduce the fear of crime older adults often experience.
The committee is seeking input from seniors in the community.
It is currently made up of local law enforcement, the Vigo County Prosecutor's Office, Indiana State University, and several outreach programs.
"It engages the senior community to come together and teach them scams and to be aware of people who want to take advantage," Sheriff Greg Ewing said.
