(This amendment provides $140,000 from the general fund each year to continue the Virginia TRIAD partnership. This program is intended to reduce the fear of crime and victimization among senior citizens by increasing the awareness of scams and frauds targeting seniors, strengthening communication between law enforcement and senior communities, and educating seniors on state and local resources available to them. There are currently 87 TRIAD partnerships in Virginia. The Office of the Attorney General has supported this program since 1995, using federal grant funds since 2003. The Attorney General applied to the federal Bureau of Justice Assistance to continue the federal funding, but the application was denied.)
