PAPS asking residents to report graffiti
There has been a recent increase in gang related graffiti 'tagging' of property in Prince Albert and the Prince Albert Police Service would like your assistance in reporting it.
If you notice a property or location that has graffiti please report it by calling the Prince Albert Police Service non-emergency line (306) 953-4222 (Option 2) or the Online Report A Crime option on www.papolice.ca.
File #18-18554 - Graffiti - has been created to track the graffiti activity in the city and can be referenced when filing a police report.
Residents that are wanting to remove graffiti can access the City of Prince Albert's Anti-Graffiti Paint Program. https://citypa.ca/Residents/Clean-and-Safe-Community/Anti-Graffiti-Paint-Program
Residents can attend to the Community Services Department (2nd Floor City Hall) to fill out an application to receive a free paint kit to be used for removing graffiti.
Studies have shown the most effective way to prevent graffiti from reoccurring in an area is to remove it promptly within a 24-48 hour area.
The Prince Albert Police Service thanks the public for their assistance.
