Officials from around the state joined in Findlay on Thursday to talk about helping senior citizens.

The conference was for a partnership called "Triad" which involves the community and law enforcement working together with seniors to address some of the issues that impact them.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office asked Findlay to host Thursday's conference at Birchaven Village, which featured speakers including Ohio Supreme Court Justice Sharon Kennedy to talk about topics like elder abuse and local resources - a conversation needed to help take care of people in the future.

"As this generation continues to get older and grow, there’s more services that are needed, so we can make our community aware what issues that are unique to that group, and we can hopefully keep them from being victims whether it’s scams or health-related issues as well?," said Beth Baker, Crime Prevention Specialist for the Hancock Co. Sheriff's Office.

The Hancock Triad group meets regularly on the first Thursday of the month at 1 p.m. at the 50 North Facility in Findlay.
