Dob in a graffiti vandal app rolls out

The State Government is teaming up with the Local Government Association to deliver an enhanced graffiti-reporting mobile phone app that will make it quicker and easier for the public to report graffiti and minor property damage to their local council.

Attorney-General John Rau said the project is a great example of Local and State governments working together.

“The partnership will see enhancements made to the My Local Services app, which was launched by the Local Government Association in February 2014,” Mr Rau said.

“Once councils adopt the new system, users of the app can be confident that no matter where you are, if you report graffiti or minor property damage with your smart phone it will get to the right person for the right response.

“The improved app will include information and tips for graffiti removal and will also assist in the identification of graffiti hot spots across the State.

“We are committed to increasing efforts to reduce the incidence of graffiti in our communities as it places an unnecessary cost on businesses, homeowners and ratepayers.”
