Graffiti !! What you should do when you spot it

April 7, 2008

From the Bureau of Community Outreach –




Graffiti Abatement Pilot Program


Why Should I Report Graffiti?
Removing graffiti promptly significantly reduces the chance of reoccurrence.

A speedy report followed by cleanup makes repeat offenses less likely, and gets our community looking better right away.

Vandals will know that the community is watching.

How Do I Report Graffiti?
If you spot graffiti, call the Graffiti Hotline at 757-664-6510. Be prepared to provide a street address of the “tagged” property.

Report all crimes in progress to 9-1-1!

What Happens Once I Report Graffiti?
The property owner will be contacted and advised of the problem, and the steps they can take to have the graffiti removed. 

Photos and reports will be taken, and consent form (applicable in the TAG-OUT area) completed.
