Help fight graffiti
Looks like multiple cities are seeing a recent increase in graffiti. Both Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo have seen more graffiti in the last month than they usually get in a year. If the cleanup for a particular tagging exceeds $400, it’s considered a felony if they catch the culprit. If you see anyone defacing public or private property, call the police!
And in the South County, gangs in Santa Maria are coming North into Nipomo and the community is still dealing with the recent drive-by shooting.
I then read in the paper yesterday that the Grover Beach Police Department has stopped their DARE program in local schools due to lack of funding.
It sounds like we need to deal with some of these issues before it gets worse…
