    Grand Rapids Graffiti Removal Program

    Grand Rapids Graffiti Abatement ProgramThe City Commission and staff take the position that graffiti has a negative effect on the quality of life within Grand Rapids. Rapid removal is key to controlling and stopping the spread of more graffiti.

    If you see graffiti in progress or know the identity of a graffiti suspect, please call the Grand Rapids Police Department at 456-3400 or call Silent Observer at 774-2345.

    If you would like to report a graffiti location online, please go to our Graffiti on Public Property page. You may also call 311 to report the graffiti location.

    Please provide a detailed description of the problem. Provide information about the street address, structure type, surface material, and what color paint would match best to cover it up.

    If there is a graffiti problem on private property, please notify us by filling out and mailing this Graffiti ​Release Form. You will be giving the City permission to go onto your property to paint and/or powerwash the graffiti.
