Graffiti Abatement Program
We need your help! The new PortlandOnline Graffiti Report system is
up and running, and ready for you to use. Please help us test the effectiveness
of this system by using it to report all types of graffiti in Portland.
Please be as specific as possible when using this system. As always,
exact addresses for buildings/businesses, and intersections for street
signs, will be most helpful when we refer the reports for removal.
Thanks for your cooperation. Our goal is to improve livability in our
neighborhoods by cleaning graffiti wherever it occurs. The more eyes and
ears in the community that are helping us gather accurate information,
the easier it will be to track and remove graffiti in all neighborhoods.
Ultimately, we want to tie in with law enforcement and prosecution, to
apprehend the vandals and hold them accountable for the damage they cause.
