Wipe Out Vandalism and Graffiti
(NCJ 171122) December 1998
OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
Wipe Out Vandalism and Graffiti defines vandalism -- emphasizing that it is a crime and not a prank -- and provides youth with practical and straightforward advice on how to "wipe out" vandalism and graffiti in their communities. In starting up an antivandalism or antigraffiti project, for example, youth should educate the public and repair any damage before identifying resources and recruiting volunteers. The Bulletin also describes the challenges and rewards of instituting antivandalism or antigraffiti projects, supplies tips on how youth can evaluate their projects, and lists organizations for youth to contact for additional information. Like that of other Bulletins in this series, Wipe Out Vandalism and Graffiti's writing and format are geared to youth.
