The City’s graffiti abatement team removes graffiti from public property 6 days a week. Barring inclement weather, every effort is made to remove graffiti within 72 hours from receipt of the report. The City is committed to maintaining a graffiti-free community and has developed a variety of ways to fight graffiti including:
An anti-graffiti ordinance
A reward system for information about taggers
Graffiti Hotline 94-PRIDE (947-7433) so citizens can report graffiti
Report online using the form below
If you are interested in helping remove graffiti, you can sign up for the Adopt-A-Wall program. The program assists local residents who volunteer to remove graffiti in their neighborhood by providing them with free paint and materials, and teaches them how to report suspicious activity, and document and remove graffiti. Participation in the program does not obligate the participant to respond every time their adopted area has graffiti, nor does it relieve the City of its responsibility to remove graffiti in adopted areas. For more information about the Adopt-A-Wall program, please call 661/267-5170.
Graffiti that occurs on private property, such as businesses or on multi-family or single family homes, are the responsibility of the property owner to remove.
