The governing body of any municipality may, by ordinance, provide for the offering
of rewards not exceeding $500.00 each, for the detection and apprehension of any person
guilty of purposely or knowingly damaging tangible property of another by an act of
graffiti in violation of N.J.S. 2C:17-3. A reward is to be payable after conviction out of those funds of the municipality
made available therefor. The reward shall be paid to any person who the governing body, acting upon the recommendation
of the municipal chief of police or other principal municipal law enforcement officer,
may deem entitled thereto, but no reward shall be paid to any public employee whose
duty it is to investigate or to enforce the law or to the employee's spouse, child
or parent, living in the same household.
For the purposes of this act, “act of graffiti” means the drawing, painting or the making of any inscription on a bridge, building,
public transportation vehicle, rock, wall, sidewalk, street or other exposed surface
on public or private property without the permission of the owner.
