The department operates a Graffiti Hotline to
enable the public to report graffiti on both
public and private property. The Community
Affairs Division (CAD) monitors the hotline
and disseminates information from it to the
district patrol commands for action.
The Graffiti Hotline (723-3475) shall be
monitored in the CAD, Monday through Friday, 0745 to 1630 hours.
The CAD shall monitor the hotline daily and
record the information received on the Graffiti Hotline Report,
HPD-501 form. They will disseminate the forms
to the district patrol commands via channels
for action as the complaints are received.
Upon receipt of a graffiti report from the CAD, the district patrol command shall:
A. Determine the identity of the property owner;
B. Notify the property owner that the graffiti
should be removed and offer suggestions to help accomplish the removal; and
C. Submit a written report to the CAD summarizing
the actions and results (what the command and the property owner did).
The CAD shall keep the after-action report on file for reference.
