Graffiti vandalism – whether gang-related (most isn’t) or not – is a perennial problem. What’s being done about it? What should you do if you see it? One more reminder is just in from the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council – that’s their spotlight topic this Tuesday night:
Most people don’t know that the Seattle Police Department has a detective solely devoted to graffiti crimes. Detective Christopher Young will discuss all aspects of graffiti crimes including the reporting of graffiti, how to identify gang graffiti, the prosecution of graffiti crimes, ways to deter graffiti, and how graffiti is often correlated with more serious crimes.
Everyone’s welcome – 7 pm Tuesday (March 19th), Southwest Precinct meeting room (right off the parking lot, enter from SW Webster just west of Delridge). As always, police will discuss recent crime trends, and there’s time for attendees to bring up their neighborhood concerns too.
