BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is urging residents to call Crime Stoppers to report graffiti in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Broome says residents who take images or videos of individuals vandalizing property can notify Crime Stoppers online or through their mobile app.

“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,” Broome said in a statement. “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.”

“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,” Broome said.
