In recent weeks, we have had unusually high number of instances of graffiti at a some of our Pullman parks. The graffiti has been on park buildings, benches, tables, and in park restrooms. At Spring Street Park staff painted the restrooms and less one day after opening, it had already been tagged again with graffiti, which has resulted in the restrooms again being closed.

Graffiti vandalism is a crime. It is the act of marking or defacing premises or other property without permission. 

Graffiti vandalism significantly affects individuals and the community. 

The removal and prevention of graffiti vandalism is very costly to the community. Hundreds of tax payer dollars are being spent annually on cleaning up graffiti and repairing the damage that it causes. Spending this public money on cleaning graffiti means that money is not being spent on things that can benefit the community. 

Graffiti vandalism can be a dangerous activity. Graffiti is often applied in dangerous locations, such as along train tracks, train corridors and train tunnels. 

We are asking you to report any unusual activity that you may witness in any of our city parks. You can call us at 509-338-3227 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, or email us. We thank you in advance for your help with this issue.
