Default Booyah! It pays to clean up and report graffiti.

I live in Tigard and, about a year ago, became fed up with the graffiti that was cropping up in my neighborhood. I began working alongside the Tigard PD, reporting new graffiti as is showed up, taking pictures and cleaning it up.

After three or four months and three or four calls, it seemed those responsible began to get tired of having their little vandalism not stick around as it would get cleaned up nearly as soon as they vandalized a piece of property. It pays to clean up graffiti!

Fast forward almost a year. I receive a call this afternoon from the officer I worked with. I was told that one of the guys responsible was recently sentenced to prison for a year and some of the information I turned over helped put him there. It pays to report graffiti! Article below:
