Graffiti Removal

Graffiti RemovalThe City of Corona's graffiti abatement program is a multi-faceted endeavor which involves multiple City departments, but we need your help to ensure unsightly graffiti is removed quickly and vandals are caught.

The Public Works Department administers the City's Graffiti Removal program. The program removes graffiti from public property utilizing environmentally safe methods such as power washing, gel removers, and painting. Please help in keeping Corona beautiful by contacting the Graffiti Hotline at (951) 817-5841 to report any and all markings in the community. When making a report please make sure to provide the location of the graffiti, including cross streets and the object with graffiti on it, such as a wall, utility box or the side of a building. If you prefer, you can also report graffiti locations by filling out an Online Service Request form.

To report graffiti that is currently in progress, dial 9-1-1. Please be ready with the location of the incident, a description of the suspect(s) and their vehicle.

The City operates a reward program for anyone providing information that leads to the apprehension, arrest, and conviction of the person or persons responsible for vandalism, graffiti or theft in the City. To report suspicious activity, please call (951) 736-2333 or dial 9-1-1 in an emergency.

To stop graffiti from occurring the City also has a public education program that raises community awareness of the problem and educates children on the damage caused by this vandalism. The City held an anti-graffiti poster and slogan contest for the middle schools and received hundreds of creative entries. The City Council honored the poster winners at the May 7th, 2008, City Council meeting and presented them with gift baskets with items donated from local organizations and businesses.
