• SENIOR CITIZEN PROGRAMS

  • TRIAD AND YELLOW DOT PROGRAM

  • The TRIAD program is a partnership between the Branford Police Department, the Branford Senior Center and People’s United Bank.
    The goals of the TRIAD include alleviating the fear of seniors from being victimized, provide programs to educate seniors, provide assistance to victimized seniors, and open the lines of communications between the police and the senior community.

  • The Yellow Dot Program is a Triad Project to help save lives.
    The project consists of an Information Card and a Yellow Dot to be affixed to the car window. The card should be filled out in pencil and should be updated as needed. After completing the information, the Yellow Card should be slipped into the supplied envelope and then placed in the car glove compartment where it should remain all the time. The Yellow Dot Decal will then be placed on the Inside Rear Window on the Driver’s side.
    In the event of an emergency, first responders can identify the vehicle as that of a Yellow Dot participant and will know to look inside the glove compartment for this pertinent information.

    This project is a cooperative effort by the Branford Police Department, the Branford Senior Center and People’s Bank.
