Reporting graffiti vandalism

It is important to report all graffiti vandalism to the WA Police Goodbye Graffiti hotline, 1800 44 22 55, or website (www.goodbyegraffiti.wa.gov.au). All reports made to Goodbye Graffiti generate a WA Police incident Report number (IR#) and is logged in the WA Police database. The below flowchart shows the steps a graffiti report will take.

Preventing graffiti

Reduce the likelihood of graffiti vandalism on your property by:

  • Planting creepers and foliage along walls and fences
  • Painting in dark colours
  • Keeping your property well maintained
  • Install sensor lights making sure the area is well lit at night
  • Investigate the benefits of having an anti graffiti coating applied
  • Remove any and all graffiti as soon as possible to deter a recurrence
