In San Francisco’s latest effort to clean up city streets and building sides, officials hope a $250 reward will convince people to turn in graffiti vandals. Mayor Gavin Newsom and District Attorney Kamala Harris unveiled a Graffiti Rewards Fund Program Friday in North Beach, offering $250 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of graffiti taggers. “Our message to taggers is clear,” said Newsom. “We do not tolerate graffiti vandalism in San Francisco. Your tag will not stay up.” View the rest of the article here.

250 dollars for ratting someone out, really doesn’t seem like enough money to be a snitch. Also in the article it says that anyone that wants to volunteer to clean up graffiti can get free roller paint and supplies to do so. It’s funny San Francisco graffiti writers can potentially get free roller paint from the city.
