From the Salt Lake Tribune:
“Thad LeVar of Tooele discovered he was the victim of a vandal Wednesday after someone painted gang graffiti on his home’s retaining wall. Before he had a chance to report the vandalism, a neighbor called the city to complain and a code enforcement officer from Tooele’s Community Development Department came to his home and left a notice that he would receive a citation if the graffiti was not removed within seven days.
What the officer did not do was report the vandalism to the Tooele Police Department, even though graffiti is a crime. LeVar did contact the police, and they were quite interested in taking a report and investigating the graffiti. Here’s a radical thought: What if those two government departments of the city of Tooele actually talked with each other?”
