These latest taggings were from last Friday night, September 14th. If you go to last weeks’ crime map you’ll see the exact location.
You’ll see a recurring theme in these photos; SS (South Side) and BP (Brown Pride). We’ve seen both recently but we’ve had them before, too.
Here is a link to a document from DPS called Gang Awareness Brochure . There is a lot of good information in here to inform regular folk on the nuances of gangs and the people that are in them. For instance, the average age for a gang member is 14 – 21. Younger and older are not too uncommon, however. We are providing this brochure here so you can be more informed.
The images you see may be on school books or papers, even drawn on flesh. Is you see something, say something and call the PCSO Non-Emergency number at 1.520.866.5111. If you are in an emergency situation always dial 911. Always let the HOA office know as well. We have a clean up crew that takes these pictures and gets the graffiti down as soon as possible as well as files a report with the PCSO The office number is 480.987.8780.
On a side note, the program the PCSO uses for outputting the media alerts we use for our crime maps is down and I’m not sure when it will be up so I can finish last weeks map and start this weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.
