Did you know that graffiti/tagging is a crime?  Parents...did you know that YOU can be fined up to $10,000.00 if your child is caught committing a graffiti-related crime? Punishment for the person committing the crime may also include a fine of up to $1,000, loss of driving privileges and criminal restitution. Please talk to your children about the seriousness of this crime. Kids often do not think about the consequences that can follow when they do things like painting graffiti or tagging, or how it affects the person whose property they are damaging. They may not even be aware that it is a crime (criminal damage)!  Please keep all paint locked up.  Keep the lines of communication with your children open.  If you witness anyone painting graffiti/tagging, please call the Mesa Police Department at (480) 644-2211 immediately.

Take photos of any graffiti you see in your neighborhood and send them to us!  Our Gang Unit needs to know where all graffiti is in Mesa. Although it's very important to paint over graffiti as quickly as possible, it is equally important that we know when and where it is occurring. The Mesa Police Department Gang Unit uses this information to track gang activity across the city. By submitting your photos, along with the date, time and location, BEFORE you paint it out, you are helping our Gang Unit put an end to this crime. Please keep us informed of the damage in your area.
