Anyone can report acts of graffiti vandalism against public assets, community facilities or private property. If graffiti vandalism occurs on your own property or a property you are responsible for, you should report the incident as soon as possible.

Please note, you can report anonymously unless you are reporting as a victim. A victim report requires identifying information to aid the police in their enquiries.
Before removing any graffiti you are encouraged to photograph the damage and keep the original images for the police, should they require them. Click on Tips for taking photos of graffiti for more information.
In the event of significant graffiti damage (racist/obscene or large scale) or suspicious activity including incident occurring at that time, you are urged to contact 131 444 to request Police attendance.
Be aware that not all local councils will remove graffiti vandalism from private property. Those who do offer the service will require the person responsible for the property to sign a waiver before removing the graffiti. Please contact your local council for advice on their graffiti removal policy.
