Graffiti and Illegal Dumping

GRAFFITI & ILLEGAL DUMPING HOTLINE 311

Look around your community. Do you see walls covered with graffiti? Spray paint on stop signs? Public restrooms vandalized with gang-related scrawlings? Piles of trash?

Graffiti and illegal dumping is a significant vandalism problem for businesses and communities throughout this country. Besides defacing public and private property, graffiti and illegal dumping signals disorder in a neighborhood and invites crime. The physical condition of a neighborhood and a business district sends clear signals to potential offenders about the likelihood of being apprehended for their crimes.
