Add additional lighting to the area so vandals will be seen easily.
Add texture to the paint to make it more difficult to paint decoratively.
Choose paints that are easy to clean in case the vandalism reoccurs.
Graffiti artists want their work to be seen. By removing it immediately, their time and energy is wasted. Removing graffiti promptly is the best way to discourage future graffiti.
If possible, plant shrubs or bushes in front of large surfaces that are potential targets for graffiti. Planting shrubs or bushes can make it more difficult to get to a surface and therefore deter graffiti.
When you see graffiti in the city, encourage property owners to report the vandalism to the police department and then promptly remove it.
Work together with city departments to help keep our city a nice place to live and work.
