The City Council approved a new graffiti abatement service with Graffiti Protective Coatings (GPC), a company that serves more than 1,000 municipalities, government agencies and private clients. Best of all, GPC’s technique leaves virtually no trace of past vandalism and provides a minimum 98% color match guarantee of the original color.
GPC offers a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week response to any reported graffiti! They will also provide a 60-minute or less response time to emergencies. You may report graffiti by calling the City’s graffiti hotline at (760) 770-8286 or through the GORequest app on your smartphone. The GORequest app will automatically detect your location and you simply tap on the issue, provide a picture or message if you like, and then hit send.
Other cities that have utilized this service notice over time a significant reduction in tagging as the company covers the graffiti within 24 hours. There becomes no incentive to tag if the object is covered almost instantly. However, we need you to help alert us of where the tagging occurs as soon as you notice it.
