The City of Portland's Graffiti Abatement Program enforces the Graffiti Abatement Nuisance Code in circumstances when no action is being taken by a property owner to resolve graffiti problems on their property. In addition, we partner with law enforcement to identify prolific tags throughout the City of Portland and track their locations.

Graffiti Task Force

Public agencies involved in graffiti vandalism abatement, including law enforcement representatives and district attorneys meet monthly.
