Let's Wipe Out Graffiti
Regina’s Graffiti Management Program plans to eradicate graffiti through education, engagement and enforcement. To learn more about the program, contact the City at 306-777-7000.
Why is graffiti removal important?
Graffiti harms our community by:
- encouraging additional graffiti and vandalism in the area where it appears
- costing money to paint or repair damage
- offending individuals when graffiti is obscene, racist, or derogatory
- damaging the natural architecture of our city
- creating fear of crime
Record: Take a photo of the graffiti vandalism as soon as you see it. The photo is critical to successful investigations by the Regina Police Service.
Report: Report all incidents of graffiti damage to your property by calling Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. You will be given instructions on how to submit information and a copy of the photo. If you see a graffiti crime in progress, you are encouraged to call 911.
Remove: Remove graffiti from your property as quickly as possible. Graffiti that isn’t removed encourages further graffiti and other acts of vandalism.
For graffiti management to be effective, graffiti needs to be wiped out quickly whenever it appears. That’s why the Regina Property Maintenance Bylaw No. 2002-105 requires owners or occupants of property to remove all graffiti from their premises, including buildings, accessory buildings, dwelling units or structures.
