Wenatchee Combats Gang Graffiti with New Technology

April 06, 2012

    We’ve heard form some listeners in Wenatchee that there

has been a recent rash of graffiti breaking out across town. Gangs in the area often use graffiti to mark

territory or advertise their particular gang affiliation.
    Local authorities don’t

think the graffiti problem is getting much worse over time, though a bit more may show up as the weather gets

warmer. Still, graffiti removal is one of the main tools to combat gang activity, and the Wenatchee Police

Department has a brand new high tech tool to help in the battle.
