About Chatham County SALT Council

Our Mission
The Chatham County SALT Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) is a community-based initiative involving seniors, law enforcement and service providers, who work together to promote the safety of our senior citizens through education and crime prevention. Through this cooperative effort, the council seeks to alleviate fear of victimization, enhance the delivery of law enforcement and protective services, and improve the overall quality of life to our senior population.

Our History
In 2000, representatives from Savannah Police Department, Chatham County Police Department, Chatham County Sheriff's Department and AARP signed a formal Triad agreement. Triad is a commitment shared by law enforcement agencies and affiliated organizations. The purpose of Triad is to facilate agencies working together to reduce criminal victimizations of older adults. You can read more about our history under the Accomplishments tab.
