10,000 graffiti sites…..gone! GEEMD has abated more than 10,000 graffiti sites on Houston’s city property, public buildings and in parks in 2012. Often, the same locations are repeatedly defaced with offensive graffiti, only to be tagged again immediately after cleaning. The eyes and ears of the community can help reduce the amount of graffiti and reduce the cost of cleanup. Call the City of Houston’s 311 Services Hotline, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to report graffiti. You can also report graffiti activity in progress by calling 911. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards up to $5,000 for anonymous reports by phone at 713-222-TIPS, by text message to TIP610 TO CRIMES(274637), or www.crime-stoppers.org.
