Remove Graffiti

Rapid graffiti removal is seen as best-practice in graffiti reduction as it diminishes the level of recognition and reward achieved by graffiti vandals. Prompt graffiti removal also prevents assets from appearing uncared for.

Overall the State Government’s approach to managing graffiti vandalism is to encourage the owners of assets to remove graffiti from their assets as soon as possible, with the preferred target being within 48-hours (from the time of reporting), or immediately if the graffiti is racist or obscene.

The State Government has introduced graffiti vandalism removal standards for public sector bodies by way of a Premier's Circular.  The Graffiti Vandalism Removal Standards  implements the State Government’s policy on prompt removal of graffiti vandalism by requiring all public sector bodies to adopt a 48-hour graffiti vandalism removal standard for their assets (from the time of reporting), with immediate removal if the graffiti is racist or obscene.
