Pittsburgh Police chief plans to disband Graffiti Squad

Acting police Chief Regina McDonald plans to disband Pittsburgh’s three-officer graffiti squad, a move being criticized by other city officials who say the detail will be needed in the future and just have to be re-formed anyway.

McDonald isn’t commenting on her plans reported Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which obtained a memo from the chief announcing the decision last week
