You Can Take a Stand to Prevent Graffiti and Vandalism
 
 
  • Educate the public, especially young people, about the costs of vandalism
  • Clean up vandalism as soon as it happens – replace signs, repair playground equipment, paint over graffiti
  • If you see anyone committing vandalism, report it to the police, school authorities, or someone who can take action. Remember, vandalism is a crime
  • Protect your house or apartment from vandalism by using good lighting, locking gates and garages
  • Support recreational programs for young people in your community
  • Volunteer your time, donate money or supplies, and help in any way you can
  • Involve young people in all vandalism prevention efforts
  • Organize a graffiti clean-up project in your neighborhood. Work with Neighborhood Watch and ask the city or a local business for cleaning supplies and paint
  • Work with schools or the arts community to paint murals on areas that are vulnerable to graffiti. Make it a contest for teens
  • Adopt a street or park, perhaps in cooperation with a church or business. Plant trees, bushes and flowers. Repair equipment and install trash containers
  • Organize a monthly park patrol to clean up litter and keep an eye on things
  • Utilize the hotline to report vandalism
  • Have a community meeting on vandalism to discuss its victims, costs and solutions

For more information, visit or call the LAPD Community Relations Office in your neighborhood.
