Graffiti: Tips for Prevention

Graffiti sends a message to citizens and visitors that people don’t care about their neighborhood. It also decreases property values and deters business and tourism.

GOOD TO KNOW

Keep America Beautiful’s Graffiti Hurts® program states that graffiti is the most common type of property vandalism and that graffiti removal requires a large amount of a municipality’s budget.

  • Encourage citizen reporting
  • Keep up the neighborhood
  • Remove graffiti promptly
  • Enforce anti-graffiti laws
  • Educate youth
  • Use an “adopt-a-spot” program
  • Create a paintbrush mural
  • Change the environment
  • Employ graffiti resistant surfaces
