Graffiti is a criminal offence and Police rely on information from the community in order to make arrests.
Every year, we deal with a considerable amount of graffiti throughout the Shire. Graffiti is a criminal offence and Police rely on information from the community in order to make arrests. Please ensure all instances of graffiti on your property are reported.
Graffiti on Your Property
If you find yourself the victim of graffiti, you should remove it as quickly as possible. The prompt removal of graffiti helps defeat vandals as it diminishes the level of recognition and reward achieved by these offenders.
It is a good idea to take a photo of the graffiti vandalism for your records and police records - this will also assist if you have to lodge an insurance claim.
To report graffiti on your property, please visit Goodbye Graffiti.
You can reduce the likelihood of graffiti vandalism on your property by:
