St. Landry law enforcement officers giving to senior citizens this Christmas holiday

Posted: Updated:

St. Landry law enforcement officers are giving to senior citizens this Christmas holiday.

The seniors were then treated to door prizes and a Christmas meal as a token of appreciation.

"We have a full course meal of pork steak with all the dressings," said Major Eddie Thibodeaux, spokesman for the sheriff's office. "Just to pay back a little bit to our senior citizens and just to say thank you."

Triad is an agreement between the National Sheriff's Association, International Association of Chief's of Police and the American Association of Retired Persons.  It was implemented to protect senior citizens through activities that inform them of the latest fraud and scam's tactics.            

In April of 1994 St. Landry Sheriff's Office, A.A.R.P. and ten municipal Chiefs of Police in St. Landry Parish signed the first Triad agreement. St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office have spearheaded the TRIAD by sponsoring the crime prevention workshops. 

A workshop is a full day of information on fraud, identity theft, drugs awareness, personal safety, and other safety issues concerning senior citizens.  Workshops are held in all over the parish to reach all seniors. Groups average around 250 during the workshops and 300-500 at the TRAID Christmas Party in December.  After the workshops,  guests are treated to free lunch with all the trimmings.  The workshop also includes door prizes from area merchants ranging from home decorations, personal items, to security equipment. The day is completed with games of bingo for more prizes.
