• Rapid graffiti removal is seen as best-practice in graffiti reduction as it reduces the level of recognition and reward sought by vandals. Prompt removal also prevents assets from appearing uncared for.
• Clean up incidents of graffiti vandalism and notify police using the online form that the incident has occurred.  A copy of your report will be automatically forwarded to the asset owner and/or the Local Government Authority (LGA).  Many LGAs offer a free graffiti removal service or expert advice. 

Graffiti vandalism is conservatively estimated to cost WA taxpayers over $25 million per year.  Research has identified graffiti as the second greatest concern to the wider community and the presence of graffiti adversely affects public perceptions of safety. Graffiti offending is a gateway crime and recidivist offenders regularly engage in other criminal behaviour.

The State Graffiti Taskforce is committed to reducing graffiti vandalism through The Graffiti Vandalism Strategy Western Australia 2019 – 2021.
