We were out again today with Police Officer Reinhold from the 122 and our court ordered offenders and we cleaned up another 16 locations bringing our total for this week to 19.

So far this year 57 of the 191 reported locations have been cleaned (51 by Where to Turn)

One of the locations today was at the Rocco Laurie School which we also prepared for our next American Flag mural.

The Flashcam should be in Monday or Tuesday and we will schedule a press conference to announce its deployment and to thank all those who have been involved with the graffiti removal program.

The Mayor’s CAU has asked me to attend a meeting this week to discuss ways to address the graffiti problem city. It appears that we have a better handle on it on Staten Island then they do in the other boroughs.

We are looking to schedule a cleanup in the 123 next week and hopefully if the weather cooperates we will be able to get the Clean Team Truck out one day this week.

Scott will begin a special mural dedicated to PO Rocco Laurie this week and then we have funds for one more which will be at Jewett and Victory.

We still need sponsors as we would like to complete 20 more prior to Memorial Day.

We are also looking for local businesses to join our “Strike Out Graffiti” Program.

We are asking businesses to pledge $1 each time a Staten Island Yankee pitcher strikes out a batter this season. (last year they struck out 567 batters).

The money raised will be used to purchase paint and supplies and to sponsor additional murals.

We are asking businesses for a $250 initial pledge with the balance to be paid at the end of the season.

Even if we get 10 businesses to join we would generate nearly $6,000.

Please spread the word and for more details as to how you can help go to
