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.
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
