Catch a tagger, get some cash

first_imgWEST COVINA – The City Council has approved a unique program designed to catch graffiti vandals and reward citizens who help police arrest them. A $100 cash reward will be handed to residents who turn in anyone caught marking up block walls, bridges, culverts or buildings in West Covina, officials said. The City Council adopted the program on Tuesday. The money will be kept in cold, hard cash at the police station and given away when an arrest is made, which will keep anti-graffiti mercenaries from having to wait until there is a conviction. “Graffiti in our community has become so prevalent that in many instances someone must have seen the crime being committed, but chose not to call the police,” said police Lt. Mark Dettor in a written statement. The program begins next week, officials said. “I think the reward deal is fabulous,” resident Lloyd Johnson said. “Money talks just like everything else. It pays off most of the time.” Mayor Mike Touhey also praised the program. “This does a great job,” Touhey said. “If we get them, we’re going to pay you.” Police officials said the reward payoff will be immediate. Within an hour of calling in a report of vandalism, residents can call back to the police station to find out what happened. If an arrest was made, the caller will get the money. No questions asked. Anonymity is guaranteed. Not everyone is convinced the program will be effective. “I think it’s going to be very difficult for that to be successful,” said resident Jeremy Infranca. “It’s not like a resident is going to run out of his house to grab the nearest tagger.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811 Ext. 2717 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Assessment, transferring ambulance stations to B.C. Emergency Health Services, as well as the provincial government no longer having a presence in some municipalities.Advertisement The funds are distributed electronically by the Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services.last_img read more
