  • How do I report graffiti?

    If you see anyone tagging walls or are in the act of committing vandalism, immediately report it to police on 131 444.

    If you have discovered graffiti that is is religiously/racially offensive or threatening, report it to police on 131 444.

    If you see this happening within the CBD or Northbridge, call CityWatch on (08) 9461 6611 and ask the surveillance officers to see if they can capture it on CCTV to aid police investigations.

    You can report graffiti you find on public buildings and facilities like playgrounds, bus stops and benches, as well as private property. If your property is graffitied, please report it at as soon as possible.

    Rapid graffiti removal is seen as best-practice in graffiti reduction as it diminishes the level of recognition and reward achieved by graffiti vandals. Prompt graffiti removal also prevents assets from appearing uncared for.

    The Goodbye Graffitti website will help you find information to help our community remove, report and prevent graffiti.
