Onalaska police department combats graffiti

Posted:

ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Onalaska Police Department is taking a stand against graffiti.

The police force has teamed up with Hallman Lindsay Quality Paints as part of a graffiti removal program.

A member of the police team, which includes the interns, patrols the city from graffiti at least once a week.

If any is found, community volunteers cover it up with paint donated by Hallman Lindsay.

"People who live here in town, if they're out on our nature trails or on a bike ride and they see a bunch of graffiti, that's not really the look we want Onalaska to be known for," said Sgt. Tim Berg of the Onalaska Police Department.

The department started the program since June and will continue the project until the weather gets too cold.

Then they'll start up again in the spring.
