North Delta’s Pinewood Elementary School recently experienced two acts of vandalism involving the school being tagged with graffiti. The graffiti has been removed and Delta Police are investigating these incidents.
Video cameras have also been installed at Pinewood Elementary along with signage, in an effort to deter further acts of vandalism. In addition, Delta School District issued a joint letter in partnership with Delta Police, asking parents to speak with their children about graffiti and its negative impacts and to report any information related to these recent incidents.
The City, along with Delta Police and Delta School District, takes this kind of vandalism to public property very seriously. Vandalism is costly and re-directs important school funding and resources for its removal and clean-up.
The City is asking for the public’s support in helping keep our schools and communities beautiful and free of graffiti. If you have information related to these incidents, please call the Delta Police non-emergency line at 604-946-4411. To report vandalism in progress – do not approach – please call 9-1-1.
