Graffiti Management and Removal


The City has a number of actions in place to address graffiti vandalism in our City, but crime prevention is everyone’s business and we all have a role to play. 

What Should I Do If I See Graffiti?

You should report all graffiti for prompt removal as soon as you can. You can report graffiti for removal in the City of Melville on our 24 hour graffiti maintenance line on 1800 626 119 or lodge a request. Please note we do not remove scratch graffiti, which is anything etched into a surface e.g. a window. 

If the graffiti isn’t in the City of Melville, or you’re not sure if it is in the City of Melville you can report it online at the WA Police Goodbye Graffiti webpage.

If you see an offence in progress call 131 444 for police attendance.
