A quick response is key
Graffiti is a serious crime that impacts all residents. For property owners and taxpayers, it’s a financial burden. For communities, it can devalue their worth and leave others with a negative impression of our city. But together, we can tackle graffiti in a way that ensures St. Albert remains a safe, picturesque community that we are all proud to call home.
Did you know that leaving graffiti unattended can contribute to an increase of more serious vandalism and other crimes? Did you know that removing graffiti within 24 hours significantly reduces the chance of a recurrence to 10 per cent? A quick response is key. With this in mind, the City of St. Albert is encouraging all residents to take action against this form of vandalism.
All you have to do is record, report and remove.
The City of St. Albert has launched a new reporting tool called Spruce It Up, which is an ideal way to report graffiti damage to the City (for public property) and the RCMP (for private property). You can also report graffiti to the RCMP by calling 780-458-7700.
