Graffiti sensors have yet to lead to arrests

FARGO – They’re supposed to sniff out spray paint so Fargo police can snuff out crime. But, so far, graffiti sensors installed two years ago have yet to yield any arrests.

Lt. Joel Vettel said he hopes that will soon change, because the manufacturer of the fume-detecting sensor is sending replacements with updated software just in time for prime graffiti season.
“It’s something we’re trying to tweak and modify,” he said.

The department paid $800 apiece for two sensors that were installed in summer 2010 in areas known to be frequent graffiti targets, Vettel said.

When the sensor detects paint fumes, it sends a message to officers’ cellphones and to dispatchers.
Vettel said that while the sensors haven’t worked as reliably as hoped, they have led to some close calls in which police missed the vandals by mere moments.

“Oftentimes, they can get out of there as quickly as we can get there,” he said. “It is challenging.”
The replacement sensors contain updated software that should improve their durability under Fargo’s extreme environmental conditions, Vettel said, adding the vendor, GraffitiTech Inc., has been “great to work with.”

Blu - new mural in Morocco

This newest piece of italian artist BLU has been completed in Morocco near the border fences that are the separation barriers between the North Africa country and the Spanish city of Melilla. As this area is has been the site of massive intrusions (with often tragic circumstances) of sub-Saharan people attempting illegally to enter Spain, and by extension the European Union, this re-rendering of the EU flag with barbed wire for stars and people as the blue field is particular poignant for what has become a political issue.
