Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Clark County School District are using summer school as a way to get a very clear message across about graffiti.
The police department kicked off their Graffiti-Free Las Vegas initiative at Roy Martin Middle School yesterday.
The goal is to have all public entities on board to keep kids from tagging public and private property.
The program gives the kids clear consequences and alternative ways to stay active this summer.
Organizers of yesterday's event say that taking pride in the community is just one element of the program.
They also hope the message will keep kids from experimenting with drugs and keep them interested in school.
