ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Attorney General Mark Herring has signed charters for four new chapters of the Triad program, which provides services for older Virginians.

The new chapters are in the cities of Roanoke and Salem and the counties of Botetourt and Roanoke.

Herring also announced a $1,000 mini-grant for each chapter to support its programs.

Since 1995, the attorney general’s office has coordinated the Triad program to reduce the fear of crime and victimization among seniors by increasing awareness of scams and frauds targeting them, strengthening communication between law enforcement and senior communities, and educating seniors on local and state resources.
