Correlation between Graffiti and Crime
San Antonio Police and local community watch groups use systematic approach to graffiti to combat crime. A model for community based anti-graffiti and anti-crime efforts, the San Antonio method uses data and mapping to better police the community. Gang graffiti is a communication used by gangs to claim territory. If graffiti is quickly removed, the gang has a difficult time claiming that territory with the gang and rival gangs. In areas with ambiguous gang control, crime rates decrease. Efforts such as this require close working relationship between community and police. Neighbors must remain vigilant in reporting, or cleaning graffiti as soon as it appears.
While city graffiti abatement units are best suited to remove large graffiti tags and graffiti tags on brick or concrete walls, community members through Graffiti Action Days, or community members armed with safe, effective graffiti removal kits can easily remove small and medium sized tags. Tags located on smooth surfaces such as painted surfaces, garbage dumpsters, playgrounds, fences, and mail boxes are best removed by volunteer community members. Armed with safe, effective graffiti removal kits, small tags can be cleaned by volunteer community members for less than one dollar per tag. Cost for city graffiti abatement can cost upwards to $25 or $30 per tag.
