The City of Kamloops works with many community agencies and organizations to support crime prevention and neighbourhood safety.
The Graffiti Task Force is 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 street equipment.
We treat private property on a fee-for-service basis when possible. If we are unable to help private property owners, we have a database of private companies performing graffiti removal and cover-up.
Report a Tag
Report any graffiti on City property, Telus boxes, or BC Hydro boxes by calling 250-572-6848 with the specific location. If you have graffiti on your property, call us to see how we can be of service.
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 has been 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 not-for-profit society, so donations of funds or paint and equipment are always greatly appreciated and will be put to good use for the community.
