Graffiti and vandalism

Graffiti is one of the most visible forms of crime, defacing both public and private property. It costs the community around $200 million each year and has emerged as a key priority in crime prevention for Australian states and territories. Through its research, the AIC has identified key issues in dealing with this crime together with strategies to combat its incidence. The AIC website provides links to helpful resources on graffiti including a graffiti management toolkit.
