Frequently Asked Questions

I see graffiti. What should I do?
The Tigard police department is aware of the problems graffiti is causing in our community and we work diligently, on a daily basis, to get it cleaned up as quickly as we can. At one time we considered implementing a "reporting form" on this web site for reporting graffiti and other crimes but decided against it as these types of incidents need to be tracked through normal reporting channels, such as our dispatch center. To report graffiti, please call the non-emergency dispatch number at 503-629-0111. If you observe it being done—then call 911. Read more about Tigard's Graffiti Ordinance.
