Graffiti

The City of Tustin is proud to have a Graffiti Removal Program. If you happen to see graffiti, please report it using the City’s Graffiti Hotline, 714-573-3111.

The majority of graffiti is marked by vandals, also know as taggers. Most are motivated by the need to be recognized. Removing graffiti immediately from the tagged site will let vandals know they are wasting their time and materials. 

Please help in keeping our community clean. Report graffiti as soon as it is spotted.
