A Cheyenne police crackdown on graffiti appears to be helping clean up the streets. Three years ago, police initiated the Graffiti Abatement Program and it appears to be picking up momentum. When the organization started, they averaged 3-4 calls a week on reports, but are now down to around three a month.
For the past three years, the Cheyenne police have stressed to residents that they need to report graffiti, and their efforts seem to be making the difference as criminals are reportedly not returning to previously tagged areas. Despite the progress on the crackdown on graffiti and apparent redirecting of mischievous ways, police encourage resident's to continue to be vigilant.
