Project Cease-fire Unveils Grafitti Van

Sheriff Witt dedicates the Graffiti Van

On Tuesday, May 24th, 2005, members of Lex­ing­ton's Project Cease-Fire un­veiled The Graffiti Van, Lexington's newest tool to combat graffiti vandalism.

"Graffiti is an outward and visible sign to the com­munity that we aren't winning the fight against crime on our streets," said Ray Larson, Com­mon­wealth Attorney. "This Graffiti Eradication Program sends a strong message to these vandals, that graffiti or any other type of vandalism will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

It is estimated that graffiti costs the country $12 billion a year to clean up," said Kathy Witt, Fayette County Sheriff. "This and any other types of vandalism lowers property values and the general quality of life in the affected part of the community, and ultimately raises taxes. Using inmate labor saves tax dollars and provides a means for those who are incarcerated to make efficient use of their time while paying their debt to the community."

Inmates help clean up after vandals

Project Cease-fire is a coalition of law enforcement and criminal justice agencies who meet reg­ularly to discuss gun-related crimes committed in Lexington: The U.S. Attorney's Office; the Com­mon­wealth Attorney's Office; the Fayette County Attorney's Office; the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff; the Lexington Divison of Police; Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Department of Homeland Security-Immigration Customs Enforcement.
