The City recognizes graffiti as a serious problem. Graffiti is destructive of the rights and values of property owners and the entire community. It has a detrimental effect on the attractiveness of our community. If preventative action is not taken it can add to the deterioration of neighborhoods. When citizens become involved in active, frequent removal of graffiti, it sends a message that graffiti and other destructive activities will not be tolerated.
The Public Works Services Division endeavors to track, address and remove graffiti. Timely reporting assists the department in the effective removal of graffiti. Citizen participation paired with dedicated response and removal personnel helps to ensure that the City remains beautiful and graffiti free.
When graffiti vandalism is in progress, do not approach the person(s). Call 911 after you have secured your own safety. While driving, pay attention to the road and other vehicles. Take the time to act safely and responsibly. To record graffiti, pull off the road safely and follow all traffic laws. Do not take notes while driving. Remember, safety is your first priority.
Report graffiti by calling the 24-hour Graffiti Hotline at 909-334-3273. Please leave specific information on the location of the graffiti you are reporting to ensure that it will be removed within 24 hours.
