According to the British Columbia Crime Prevention Assocations, graffiti is any writing, drawing or symbol applied to any surface without consent of the property owner or their agent.
Left unmanaged, graffiti can negatively impact a community’s perception of safety, quality of life, reputation, and its property values. In business areas, it can increase the fear of crime and reduce sales.
Prompt removal of graffiti can help deter graffiti vandals. They are not likely to waste time and materials if they know their work will be removed quickly.
If you witness graffiti or have information about graffiti suspects, please contact Bylaw Enforcement or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477). Pictures are always helpful.
