1. Please DO NOT try to remove graffiti yourself, or paint
transformers, sub-stations or Telkom boxes - this causes more
damage and makes it more difficult for our CIA to clean it off
2. If you see graffiti tagging taking place, please contact
24/7 Security or SAPS immediately.
3. It would help a great deal if you could take a photograph of the
perpetrators in action.
Graffiti tagging is obnoxious and a public nuisance, in addition to contributing to visual pollution.
The appearance of graffiti generates the perception that a downward spiral has begun in the area – even though this may not be true. Furthermore, the perception is that where graffiti vandalism is tolerated, other more serious crimes may also go unchallenged.
When graffiti remains in a neighbourhood, it sends a message that the community doesn’t care. Our CIA Squad ensures that graffiti is cleaned away as soon as it is reported to the PNRA.
