Hawaii considers state-level anti-graffiti program

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii would post cameras on state property and hire someone to coordinate anti-graffiti programs if lawmakers pass a bill they're considering.

The bill states that graffiti on buildings, walls, bridges, bus stops, trees, mail boxes and other surfaces are blights on Hawaii.

Supporters of the measure say local policing alone doesn't adequately address the problem.

The bill would put an anti-graffiti coordinator in the office of the lieutenant governor. It would also install cameras to detect taggers on state property.

Department of Public Safety Deputy Director of Law Enforcement Shawn Tsuha says most taggers in Hawaii are caught only when a witness calls 911 or when police stake out a location.
