San Francisco spends more than $20 million annually on graffiti cleanup. Public Works with local agencies and community partners to prevent graffiti, helps people remove it quickly, and provides programs and rewards for people who want to get involved. Remember, rapid removal is your best defense against graffiti vandalism. This page will help you learn about what the city is doing and what you can do to make San Francisco a graffiti-free city.
Public Works will paint out graffiti on public property and notify other agencies and private property owners, so they can quickly remove it. Call 911 to report graffiti in progress, report graffiti online, use the mobile SF311 app or call 311.
If you have photos of graffiti vandalism and tagging in your neighborhood, we can upload them into our database and forward them to the San Francisco Police Department.
