A new program called “TAG” is aimed at taking away graffiti, but local law enforcement agencies need your help to make sure it's a success.

Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey, along with representatives from the Grand Junction Police Department announced the new program at a press conference Saturday morning at the Long Family Memorial Park.

Sheriff Hilkey says the program is as easy as making one phone call, to 243–WASH to report graffiti, and from there, he says inmate work crews will clean up the mess.

Sheriff Hilkey says he knows the program won't be able to clean up the county overnight, but he hopes eventually, it'll get there, and says the only way for the program to work is if you pick up the phone and call.

It doesn't matter where you live in the county, the program takes care of locations and appropriate agencies.

Again the number is 243-WASH.

    I am glad to hear about this new program I find it sad that young people have to deface our community. I would love to volunteer.
