Glenwood and Lunt graffiti




While driving down each street in Rogers Park, I noticed this gang graffiti at the CTA overpass at Glenwood and Lunt Avenues.

















UPDATE:

I emailed the link to this post and other graffiti posts in Rogers Park to the CAPS program (graffiti@caps24.org).

Thanks for pointing this out. This is a great example of why we should have a graffiti tracker program.

It has now been 24 hours since the graffiti tracker program has been notified to no result. I will be printing these photos out and presenting them at our CAPS meeting tonight at the Math & Science Academy.

This kid really did a number in CAPS Beat 2423. He even tagged the bottom part of the building on the southeast corner of Estes and Glenwood.

Plus, the Ceasefire plateglass window was broken and is now boarded up.

We dont have a graffiti tracker program, though we should, they track graffiti and it helps catch graffiti taggers.

But I get your point Bill, thanks for reporting it.

They always say at the CAPS meetings that you can email the photo to be included in the police graffiti database, which is utilized to solve crimes.

These photos were sent to: graffiti@caps24.org

If that's not a "graffiti tracker program", I'm not sure what is.

I checked up on Glenwood and Lunt underpass this afternoon, and the graffiti has been painted over... with trace of original graffiti remaining.

The true graffiti tracker program has hidden cameras so they can actually catch these graffiti vandals, they put the graffiti that they remove into a database themselves so that they know who did what.

They have it in parts of California.
