Graffiti Removal Hotline and On-line Reporting
To report graffiti by phone (623)773-7094 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also report grafitti online; fill out the form below.
What do we do?
The City of Peoria has a very effective and aggressive graffiti removal team that works with property owners to get graffiti removed or painted over in 48 hours. The city cannot remove graffiti from private property without the owner’s permission. If the owner does not give the city permission to remove the graffiti, or does not respond to the contact attempts by the graffiti removal team, the matter is referred to Peoria Code Enforcement for action.
What can you do?
While the Peoria Code Enforcement, Police and Community Services Departments work closely together in dealing with graffiti, the problem can’t be solved without the help of the community.
If you see graffiti please call the Graffiti Hotline at 623-773-7094 and report the location so it can be checked. If it is reported quickly, the city can remove it quickly.
