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.
