Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's Traid program fights elderly injustice.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinnelli has been busy with two high-profile federal cases: lawsuits over the healthcare mandate and greenhouse gas emissions.
But the Attorney General maintains that many of his other programs don't get enough attention.
One project is the Triad program, which is the largest in the United States. It teams Virginia seniors, law enforcement and the Attorney General's office to fight injustices against the elderly.
"As the boomers start hitting 65 this year, we're going to see a higher proportion of our population's elderly, and part of our job is to make sure they're not abused or neglected. And so what we do with Triad is we teach folks the signs of neglect and abuse," he says.
Cuccinelli says some other major initiatives include ensuring that veterans receive the services they need, and programs that have helped to decrease gang-related crimes.
