Graffiti Information

A Message from the Griffith Police Department and Griffith Crime Watch

Graffiti is vandalism that scars our community, hurts property values, and diminishes our quality of life. To combat this crime and to maintain the beauty of our Town, the Town of Griffith offers free graffiti removal services to both public and private property owners.

To help us make this program a success, we ask that all of our residents and visitors to be on the look-out for any graffiti, on public or private property, and to report any observed instances to the Griffith Police Department at (219) 924-7503.

Once notified of the vandalism a police report will be generated and that report will be forwarded to the Griffith Parks Department. After receiving the report, the Griffith Parks Department's trained employees will immediately remove graffiti from public property but will need permission from property owners prior to doing any removal on private property.

The Griffith Police Department is dedicated to the apprehension of graffiti vandals and it should be noted that offenders, or parents of offenders, will be held liable for any monetary damages.
