SAFER Buffalo Grove Triad
The SAFER Buffalo Grove Triad is a community safety initiative that focuses on improving the safety, security, and peace of mind of the senior population through education efforts and community engagement.
The goals of SAFER are to:
- Reduce criminal victimization of seniors in our community
- Improve the safety and well-being of seniors in our community
- Educate seniors about the services available to them through local agencies
SAFER was formed in 2018 with representatives from the Buffalo Grove Police Department, Buffalo Grove Fire Department, Buffalo Grove Park District, Vernon Township and Wheeling Township who are committed to recognizing and resolving the risks faced by seniors in our community. The coalition has expanded to include additional organizations and individuals who are concerned about the safety of local seniors.
SAFER hosts a monthly Public Safety Breakfast at the Buffalo Grove Park District. These breakfasts provide representatives from the police and fire departments the opportunity to meet with seniors and address any questions or concerns in a fun and casual environment. Speakers give presentations at each meeting on important, timely topics for our community.
