Considered one of the least important crimes on the books; graffiti is more than just an eyesore: it encourages violence, claims territory and advertises their existence or claims “credit” for a crime.
Every community no matter its economic or social status has been victim to graffiti at some point and if not addressed will increase your potential for crime and violence while decreasing the quality of life.
Furthermore, the United States spends over $25 Billion annually on graffiti abatement.
In this eye-opening course, students will learn about the fundamentals of graffiti identification, the potential violence associated with it and the quality of life impact it has on the community.
KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES
The key to identifying criminal street gangs, its members and its associates is to have a solid knowledge and foundation of what traditional gangs have left as a legacy—symbols, hand signs, alphabets, terminology and beliefs. Although you may have a solid foundation, always keep an open mind.
When reading graffiti and tattoos, start by reading from left to right and top to bottom. You should also view from different perspectives. Some graffiti and tattoos are cluttered, making symbols and letters hard to identify. Determine if the gang whose graffiti you are observing and the gang member you are interviewing are active in your area. The member you are interviewing may not be from your jurisdiction but rather there to do business.
