Stop Graffiti

Taking proactive measures to help prevent graffiti vandalism is an important tool in the effort to eradicate graffiti. Homeowners, businesses, landlords, and developers can take preventive measures to reduce and or eliminate graffiti vandalism from their property. Generally, these measures include the following:

  • Using smart design elements to eliminate potential for crime including graffiti vandalism - Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).
  • Installing lighting in areas that are dark.
  • Removing graffiti rapidly (as soon as possible but no longer than 3 days).
  • Installing murals.
  • Establishing a crime prevention group. More information is available on the SAPD’s Fear Free Environment (SAFFE) site .
  • Teaching the youth in your life about the negative effects of graffiti and channel their energy into approved art forms.
