Seniors and Law Enforcement Together
The Cherokee Triad and S.A.L.T. Council was implemented in July of 2006 by The City of Canton Police Department to represent all communities in our county. This Council and organization is a partnership with the Canton Police Department, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department, the Woodstock Police Department and many different organizations including AARP, tasked with identifying and developing programs to address the needs and concerns of seniors in our community.
• Abuse of the Elderly • Personal Injury • Drug Interaction and theft • Prescription Fraud • Suspicious Persons • Home Repair Scams • Vandalism • Drug sale/use near home • Consumer Fraud • Purse Snatching • Burglary • Problems Associated with aging • Traffic Problems
TRIAD looks to alleviate fear of victimization, build confidence, enhance the delivery of law enforcement services and improve the overall quality of life to our senior population. TRIAD also works to educate individuals and businesses providing services to seniors.
S.A.L.T.’s objectives are based on those of the National Association of Triads, Inc. and is a non-profit organization (501©(3)). We are dedicated to this cause and will work hard to build a stronger community in Canton and Cherokee County.
Please join us! If you would like more information on joining S.A.L.T. or becoming a TRIAD member please contact us, we would love to hear from you!

Fire Hydrant Maintenance starting March 18, 2013
The Woodstock Fire Department will be performing fire hydrant maintenance from March 18th, 2013 through April 30th, 2013. Residents in the City of Woodstock may notice some temporary discoloration in your water.
The discoloration of your water will not harm you, although it may stain light colored clothing. The discoloration is the result of sediment that is always present in waterlines being “stirred up” during hydrant testing. As part of our testing procedures we flow each hydrant until the water is clear, however the smaller water lines that lead to each house may still have cloudy water. This condition may be remedied by flowing water from the tap until it is clear.
Fire hydrant maintenance is important to make sure the city has properly working hydrants. The Fire Department performs the maintenance twice a year. The hydrants are painted, flowed and greased. This procedure is a component of our I.S.O. (Insurance Service Office) rating. The City of Woodstock currently has a rating of 3 with 1 being the highest, or best, and 10 being the lowest, or least desirable.
If you need any additional information please contact Jimmy Eley, Fire Marshal, at 770-926-2896.
