Report Graffiti

The Town of Brookline has come together to combat the problem of Graffiti which detracts from the quality of life of all residents. The Brookline Police Department has formed a coalition with the following agencies:

  • Brookline Department of Public Works
  • Brookline District Court
  • Brookline Housing Authority
  • Brookline Public Schools
  • How can we fight Graffiti?

Graffiti is a Town wide problem that affects both public and private property owners. Both graffiti prevention and removal are time consuming, expensive and require continuous intervention.

The Town of Brookline will play a central role in the eradication of graffiti in the Town by coordinating prevention and enforcement efforts, acting as a clearinghouse for graffiti identification and removal, and setting an example by providing good maintenance of its own property. Citizens, community groups, business and residential property owners, and other public agencies and institutions are encouraged to work together within the Town to effectively combat graffiti.
