Mayor Broome declares Crime Stoppers the “Graffiti Hotline”

Baton Rouge, LA – February 14, 2020 – Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is declaring Crime Stoppers as the best direct line of communication for citizens who want to fight back against graffiti in their neighborhoods. Anyone who captures images or video of individuals vandalizing property can notify law enforcement online or through their mobile device.

“I want to make sure our citizens have an avenue to stop graffiti at its root. Our visitors and residents deserve a beautiful community, free of eyesores,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “So many of our citizens and business owners are capturing images of vandals on their video surveillance systems. This evidence can be submitted directly to law enforcement.”

Recently, the ground behind the new sculpture on the levee in downtown was vandalized with graffiti, as was the sign of the Sweet Olive Cemetery in Mid City. Citizen involvement played a role in the arrests of two individuals for these unrelated incidents.

Anyone who captures images or video of individuals vandalizing property with graffiti should submit them at www.crimestoppersbr.com, or download the anonymous P3 Tips app. You will remain completely anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.

Mayor Broome applauds citizen efforts to clean up graffiti on their own.

“Whether it’s organized campaigns like Operation Fresh Start, or volunteers acting on their own, I’m proud to see so many take the initiative to beautify our community,” said Mayor Broome.
