In order for gang prevention to succeed, communities must actively resist the influences of gang culture. When graffiti remains in a neighborhood, it sends a message that the community accepts gang activity. Graffiti should be reported promptly by community members, property owners and business owners, so that it can be removed immediately.
In an effort to keep our communities safe and gangfree, we contract with both the City and County of Los Angeles to offer a comprehensive Graffiti Abatement service to remove gang graffiti and tags. Our trucks are in the communities we serve seven days a week, taking down graffiti and removing the signs of vandalism.
Our graffiti abatement crews eliminate over eight million square feet of graffiti annually on walls, light posts, alleys, parks, businesses, and private residences. Crews are made up of our employees and volunteers referred by the courts. Graffiti crew supervisors provide more than 20,000 person hours of court referral supervision each year.
