Did you know that graffiti/tagging is a crime?
Parents...did you know that YOU can be fined
up to $10,000.00 if your child is caught committing a
graffiti-related crime? Punishment for the person
committing the crime may also include a fine of up to $1,000,
loss of driving privileges and criminal restitution. Please talk
to your children about the seriousness of this crime. Kids often
do not think about the consequences that can follow when they do
things like painting graffiti or tagging, or how it affects the
person whose property they are damaging. They may not even be
aware that it is a crime (criminal damage)! Please keep all
paint locked up. Keep the lines of communication with your
children open. If you witness anyone painting graffiti/tagging,
please call the Mesa Police Department at (480) 644-2211
Take photos of any graffiti you see
in your neighborhood and send them to us! Our Gang Unit needs to know where all
graffiti is in Mesa. Although it's very important to paint over
graffiti as quickly as possible, it is equally important that we
know when and where it is occurring. The Mesa Police Department
Gang Unit uses this information to track gang activity across
the city. By submitting your photos, along with the date, time
and location, BEFORE you paint it out, you are helping our Gang
Unit put an end to this crime. Please keep us informed of the
damage in your area.
