The city of Reno has a new anti-graffiti vandalism truck.
Workers were training on it today in Northwest Reno.
There was a considerable amount of graffiti off Interstate 80-East at the McCarran on-ramp.
The new truck is equipped with four different kinds of paint, has a 250 gallon power washer, and has the capability to sand blast or soda blast graffiti.
The old system used a truck and trailer...that couldn't always reach graffiti spots.
The truck was paid for with money that police have seized during criminal activity.
On a related note, the department received a 60-thousand dollar grant today...to support its ongoing street gang resistance program, which targets elementary and middle-school students.
