Graffiti not only depreciates the value of property which has been the target of such vandalism, but also depreciates the value of adjacent properties.
When graffiti is allowed to remain, it tends to attract additional incidents of graffiti and conveys a negative image of the city to both residents and visitors.
Graffiti Abatement Volunteers are a group of dedicated citizens who volunteer their time to combat the destructive influence and blight associated with graffiti in Newark. Volunteers work hand-in-hand with the Newark Police Department and are committed to removing blight and keeping Newark beautiful and virtually graffiti-free.
If you are interested in becoming a Graffiti Abatement Volunteer you must be:
- over the age of 18,
- interested in committing your time for the long term, and
- submit to a criminal history background check.
