Report, Remove, Prevent
Anyone can report acts of graffiti vandalism against public assets, community facilities or private property. If you see something, it's important to report it as soon as possible.

To report graffiti to Police, use the Goodbye Graffiti website. Call Police on 131 444 to report an offence in progress.
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. The rapid removal of graffiti reduces the likelihood of further vandalism, maintains a clean neighbourhood and shows potential offenders that graffiti vandalism is not tolerated.
The City offers FREE Graffiti Removal Wipes and Kits for all residents and local businesses who wish to remove graffiti from their premises or around the community. Contact 1300 422 664 and speak to the Safe Communities team for more information.
If you cannot remove the offending graffiti, contact the City for advice or visit Goodbye Graffiti for removal information and services.
