Jackson Battles Surge In Graffiti

graffiti

The Jackson Police Department is wrestling with the growing problem of graffiti in the community.  In a news release posted this week, they point out that the cost of graffiti vandalism nationally is estimated to be more than $15-billion.  Furthermore, graffiti is often associated with other criminal activity, and so its presence can negatively impact the quality of life for residents, tourism and business because of its implications.  Spokesman Cole Nethercott says the involvement of residents and business-owners within Jackson Hole is critical to fighting the crime of graffiti vandalism.  Among the things residents can do is report graffiti on public and private property, provide information to authorities if you have knowledge of who might be responsible, immediately remove any graffiti after police have completed their investigation, and keep property well lighted to deter would-be vandals.  Nethercott urges those who know of areas in town where graffiti needs to be cleaned up to call the police department immediately.
