Anti-Graffiti ProgramAnti-Graffiti Program logo

The City of Milwaukee promotes safer, cleaner communities by reducing and preventing graffiti vandalism. The Anti-Graffiti Program is part of the Department of Neighborhood Services Outreach Section and works in close partnerships with the Milwaukee Police Department, property owners, businesses, community organizations and citizens to implement a number of initiatives to ensure that graffiti is removed promptly.  The most effective weapon against graffiti is the quick removal of it. The longer it is up, the greater the chances of its return.

Call the City of Milwaukee ANTI-GRAFFITI HOTLINE at (414) 286-8715 to report graffiti.
