Stores' Responsibility

Prevent Graffiti

The following procedures are suggested to store managers to help combat graffiti in our City:

  • Assure that spray paint cans and other potential tools are in clear view of store personnel or otherwise protected from theft.
  • Educate your staff to the state and local legislation banning the sale of spray paint to minors, and make them aware of the frequent shoplifting of spray paint, markers, and etching tools.
  • In the check-out area, post signs listing the acceptable proof-of-age for all spray paint purchasers.
  • Post signs in the paint display area stating the penalties for illegal sale to minors, and for graffiti vandalism.
