From the Chief's Desk
"We have had a rise in incidents of youth spray-painting graffiti in Saugeen Shores. This is not just one group of youth that is responsible. So far we have been able to identify the youth and have remedial measures put in place. Parents why not have a chat with your kids about the harm this type of activity causes both in the damage to property and the message it sends."
