“E-TAG” (Eliminate Talmadge Area Graffiti) is a program of the Talmadge Watch: Volunteer Citizens Patrol.
Since 2008, the Patrol has partnered with the San Diego City Attorney’s Office Community Court program to utilize the community service hours of Community Court offenders to remove graffiti throughout the Talmadge neighborhood and surrounding Mid-City neighborhoods.
Beginning in 2012, the Patrol continues to partner with the City Attorney’s Office in a new capacity, still utilizing infraction and non-violent misdemeanor criminal offenders to remove graffiti throughout the area. The Patrol volunteers supervise the offenders in 4-8 hour shifts. Most supplies for this program are donated by Talmadge residents, and those that are purchased for the program are purchased through the generous donations of Talmadge residents via the Patrol’s 501(c)3 non-profit status.
The Patrol is always in need of tan, grey and white paint. Donation receipts for in-kind donations as well as monetary contributions are given from the Patrol.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to help remove graffiti in the Talmadge neighborhood and surrounding Mid-City areas, or if you are interested in making a donation to the E-TAG program, please contact the Talmadge Patrol at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may call the Patrol line at 619-453-8268.
