Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is declaring the Crime Stoppers hotline the best direct line of communication for members of the community to report graffiti in their neighborhoods.
Citizen involvement played a key role making arrests for vandalism downtown behind a new sculpture, and at Sweet Olive Cemetery in Mid City. Anyone who captures images or video of individuals vandalizing property can alert authorities online or through their mobile device.
“I want to make sure our citizens have an avenue to stop graffiti at its root. Our visitors and residents deserve a beautiful community, free of eyesores,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “So many of our citizens and business owners are capturing images of vandals on their video surveillance systems. This evidence can be submitted directly to law enforcement.”
According to the Mayor Broome’s Office, anyone who captures images or video of individuals vandalizing property should submit them at www.crimestoppersbr.com, or download the anonymous P3 Tips app. Those who report will remain completely anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
“Whether it’s organized campaigns like Operation Fresh Start, or volunteers acting on their own, I’m proud to see so many take the initiative to beautify our community,” said Mayor Broome.
