I went to a meeting with Assemblyman Titone this afternoon. On my drive from the South Shore to the North Shore I passed a few construction sites. (see SI Advance article attached)



Almost every one of them was tagged.



We sent out an offer earlier this month to clean up any construction site free of charge each and every time it is tagged.



In return we asked the development corporations of these sites to sponsor an American Flag mural.



To date we have not heard back from even one of them.



If they are not going to keep these sites graffiti free or let us do it, it is time for the Sanitation Department to start issuing summonses to the owners of theses sites.



On another note the NYPD has apprehended the biggest tagger on Staten Island. He has pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to 30 days in jail, 3 years probation and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution. (see article below)



He was also sentenced to 30 days of community service, so he now has to report to Where to Turn and you have my word that he will spend this time cleaning up graffiti on Staten Island.



We have had a few major sites tagged recently and despite the weather we will be conducting a clean up this weekend with our offenders and the 122 precinct.



We are trying to stay a step ahead of these vandals.



We really need your help. We are attempting to obtain some special cameras to help the police catch these vandals.



Any help in getting word to your local representatives to help us achieve this would be greatly appreciated.



While we understand the budget situation we need to get some money set aside for these cameras (at least one in each precinct) as what they will save in catching these vandals will more than make up for the cost.



These cameras are mobile, solar powered and employ motion detection and can take clear photos in total darkness that can be remotely downloaded to a laptop.



Your help would be greatly appreciated.
