Los Angeles: On December 14, 2002, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Newton Area Police Station, Councilmember Jan Perry, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, the Department of Public Works and a variety of community based organizations will come together to launch the Graffiti Free Zone Program.

In recent years, there has been an alarming increase in graffiti vandalism in the City of Los Angeles. The intent of the Graffiti Free Zone Program is to strategically target and systematically eradicate graffiti and associated gang crimes from residences and businesses in the target area.

The program aims to identify an area in the community that is affected by graffiti vandalism, gang violence and narcotics activity and then deploy community resources, City services and police enforcement. The program will utilize a three- prong approach consisting of community education, aggressive police enforcement and vigorous prosecution of offenders.

Nearly 2,000 residents and community members are expected to participate in this public event. Los Angeles Chief of Police William J Bratton, as well as representatives from the Mayor’s Office, Council District 9, the Office of the City Attorney and the Department of Public Works are expected to attend and pledge their support to the program.

For more information, please call Richard Lee, Public Works Affairs Office, at 213-978-0324.

This media advisory was prepared by Officer Grace Brady, Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
