Operation Tag project is established because it was agreed by all that a multi-agency approach to the problem was essential and the sharing of information between all parties was critical, therefore all information gathered was handed over to the police. Photographs were taken of each new ‘tag’ and local residents surveyed their area for occurrences and reported any new incidences. It was agreed that not only was it important to enforce the law but also to raise public awareness of the costs involved of removing graffiti and the penalties for those breaking the law.
Main goals of the project are:
1. Decrease the number of graffiti vandalism offenders.
2. Keep neighbourhoods free from graffiti vandalism.
3. Ensure all graffiti vandalism is reported
