Community Matters: Graffiti

The Department of Public Works supports the control of graffiti through the Graffiti Abatement Section, which manages abatement crews throughout the County. If you spot graffiti in your community, report it to DPW.

There are two ways to report graffiti to DPW:

  • Contact the Graffiti Hotline at (800) 675-4357. Live operators are available to take your call 24/7 with a target response time of 48-hours or less.
  • Visit the Stop Graffiti Website. Provide your contact information, graffiti details, and upload a photo.

The County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, in association with the Department of Public Works Graffiti Abatement Program, sponsors a youth program known as T.A.G. - Totally Against Graffiti T.A.G. teaches elementary school children about the costs and consequences of graffiti, and encourages kids to report graffiti in their neighborhoods.

T.A.G. includes several dynamic components, including The Kids on The Block and The Difference Between Art and Graffiti programs, which have helped earn T.A.G. the recognition as one of the most successful public works programs in the nation. The T.A.G. Mobile Classroom visits schools and rewards kids for improving their neighborhoods, and T.A.G. also organizes school and neighborhood clean-up days.
