Street Watch HELP RUB OUT GRAF­FITI OF­FENCES

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

PO­LICE are tar­get­ing graf­fiti of­fend­ers and are call­ing for pub­lic sup­port in a crack­down on un­law­ful dam­age. Op­er­a­tion Quad­ran­gle III started on Fe­bru­ary 20 with Po­lice Trans­port Unit and lo­cal po­lice fo­cussing on graf­fiti of­fend­ers. Re­search shows graf­fiti is a gate­way crime, mean­ing many graf­fiti of­fend­ers es­ca­late to com­mit more se­ri­ous crimes. We need the pub­lic to pro­vide us with in­for­ma­tion about of­fences, and par­ents who are con­cerned that their child may be en­gag­ing in graf­fiti can seek in­for­ma­tion and sup­port through the Good­bye Graf­fiti web­site.
