Graffiti is vandalism and can sometimes be associated with gangs. If you see graffiti in the Third Ward, please call 311, use graffiti busters, or complete Alderman Dowell’s Service Request form. If possible, let them know if it is gang or hate crime related, what type of surface it is on (i.e. masonry, brick, vinyl, etc.), and if it is over 6 feet from the ground. This information allows Streets and Sanitation to know what equipment they need, so they can take care of it faster.
