The Citizens Law Enforcement Anti-Graffiti Initiative (CLEA-GI) evolved from a group of Phoenix community leaders joining with the Arizona Police Association for the purpose of mitigating the problem of graffiti vandalism, rather than just repeatedly covering up the problem with more and more paint.
CLEA-GI is not a for-profit or nonprofit, but a state wide partnership of citizens, law enforcement, municipal and county jurisdictions, private organizations and businesses.
By analyzing the factors that contribute to juvenile and adult graffiti vandalism, CLEA-GI is working to bring technology, education and environmental design to mitigate the devastating and far reaching effects of graffiti upon communities and families.
CLEA-GI is based on the value of one and the power of many. Just like the legs of a starfish, with everyone working together, we can make a change.
