Correia Calls on Providence Police to Target Graffiti

Councilman Michael Correia (Ward 6) is calling on the Providence Police to assemble a task force of officers to address graffiti in his ward. 
“Graffiti is affecting property values and causing hardship for business and families in the community,” said Correia. “With the support of the Providence Police, we can get to the source and mitigate the amount of graffiti that plagues our neighborhoods.”
In a letter addressed to Public Safety Commissioner Steven M. Paré and Police Chief Colonel Hugh T. Clements, Jr., Correia cites constituent concerns of increased vandalism. Without proper police intervention, said Correia, “vandals’ disregard for the law will lead to further criminal activities.”

To expedite a resolution, Correia is offering a $500 reward leading to arrest and conviction of individuals involved in vandalism.
