Kamloops Graffiti Task Force Society

Kamloops Graffiti Task Force Society

Who we are and what we do

We are a very small non-profit Society partnering with the City of Kamloops to remove or paint all graffiti on City Property.

We also partner with Telus, BC Hydro, and CP Rail to clean all their street equipment. In the case of CP Rail, we also clean all their silver signal boxes and buildings in Kamloops.

We treat private property on a fee for service basis when possible. If we are unable to help private property owners, we have a data base of private companies performing graffiti removal and cover-up.

Report a Tag
Please report any graffiti on City property, Telus boxes, or BC Hydro boxes, call 250-314-0386 with the location. If you have graffiti on your property, call us to see how we can be of service.

Take pride in your community

Have you noticed any graffiti in your neighbourhood lately? Your fence, public washrooms, on your way to work, graffiti seems to be everywhere. It's bad for business, it invites other types of crime such as home break-ins and other forms of vandalism. We need your help.

What you can do

To effectively combat graffiti, it is best to remove it within 24 hours. This sends a message out to the "taggers" that it is a waste of time and paint because no one will see their "tag". Having their "tag" seen by as many people as possible is the goal of all graffiti vandals.

If your property has been vandalized by graffiti remove it or phone us and we will remove it at a small cost to you. If you require a paint match we ask that you supply the paint. If you see public property that is vandalized, phone us and we'll remove it. If you see a vandal in the process of defacing property with graffiti, phone the police and report it.

Call us to report graffiti or to volunteer your time. We are a non-profit society. Any donations of funds or paint, and equipment would be greatly appreciated and put to good use for the community.

Statistics

Some information has been collected on graffiti taggers that were caught in Vancouver and Toronto, and the percentages for each city were almost identical. We have no reason to believe that the Kamloops taggers are any different.

  • 80% steal the paint they use.
  • 60% are consuming drugs of some kind.
  • 10% are sniffing the paint fumes.
  • 70% have a criminal Record for other offences.

Many believe these vandals are simply misguided artists that need a place to paint, these statistics indicate otherwise.
