Graffiti vandalism

Graffiti is vandalism when done without permission.

Assisting with graffiti removal

Auckland Council runs a proactive graffiti prevention program. An objective of the Zero Tolerance policy is the swift removal of street frontage graffiti from private property & small business. This will be done within 24 hrs of being reported. Another objective is to bring graffiti vandals to justice, with files being passed to police. Contractors photograph tagging before painting them out, entering them into a regional database and are used for prosecution purposes. Photographs sent in by the public are also available to police for this purpose.

Volunteers Programme

To assist small business and private property owners to remove their own street frontage graffiti vandalism, Auckland Council supports a comprehensive anti graffiti vandalism volunteer programme.
