Supervisor Gloria Molina quote:
"We are committed to holding the vandals accountable who shamelessly plague our neighborhoods with graffiti, and I am pleased to support the sheriff's efforts such as today's operation by securing the same tools for the Valinda Corridor that have helped with more than 400 graffiti arrests since January 2008." As part of her effort to make her successful graffiti pilot regional, Molina has secured funding for the Graffiti Tracker to be extended to the Valinda Corridor.
