The most common form of property crime in Anaheim neighborhoods is graffiti. Through the Anaheim Community Anti-Graffiti Effort (ACAGE), City staff, in partnership with residents, community leaders and the business community, has developed a comprehensive strategy that attacks graffiti from all sides of this complex issue. ACAGE focuses on a variety of fronts, including education, protection of property, prompt removal, applicable justice efforts and collaborating with local programs serving Anaheim youth to reinforce the negative consequences of graffiti.
Graffiti Prevention Tips
Provide well-maintained landscaping which makes the area inaccessible by using thorny shrubs, bushes, or vines in front of walls and buildings.
Add more exterior lighting in areas that are dark at night.
Use anti-graffiti coatings on textured materials like concrete, brick, stone, stucco, and stained or unfinished wood.
