The weekly senior citizen’s luncheon at the Luther Community Center next Tuesday will feature a program from the Luther Police Department and Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office on safety and crime prevention.
Luther Police Chief Marcus Thurman presents at each first Tuesday of the month as part of the SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council.
LPD and OCSO work together to bring crime prevention and safety information straight to the citizens they serve. The biggest program is the TRIAD Program that creates a three-way partnership between the Sheriff’s Office, local police and seniors to take steps for safety and well-being.
Luther has one of the many local groups in Oklahoma County. Similar active local groups are in Choctaw, Del City, Edmond, Harrah, Midwest City, North OKC, South OKC, East OKC, Village/Nichols Hills and Warr Acres.
The group also conducts an Elder Law Day; Senior Awareness Day and Older Driver Safety Day.
“We also partner with Sunbeam Family Services and other law enforcement agencies on Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, a back-to-school and holiday program for local children being raised by their grandparents. Currently, we have about 500 active TRIAD members, and each month we grow even more,” said Chief Thurman.
“We are committed to keeping our seniors safe, so don’t miss out on free opportunities to stay one step ahead of the crooks,” said Chief Thurman.
