Ipswich Triad is a community safety initiative that focuses on empowering, educating, and improving the safety, security, and peace of mind of the senior population.


Reduce criminal activity, which targets the senior community. Alleviate senior's fear of victimization, build confidence, and improve their quality of life. Enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to the senior population.
