General Services Graffiti Division

The City of Bakersfield's Anti-Graffiti Program assists the residents of Bakersfield with the eradication of graffiti. Residents, or merchants, whose property has been vandalized with graffiti receive free matching paint to enable them to remove the graffiti promptly. Graffiti vandalism should be reported immediately. With the help of Bakersfield's Police Department GHOST Program and the City Attorney's Office, numerous individuals have been apprehended and prosecuted. Besides facing criminal prosecution, offenders also must deal with civil prosecution from the City Attorney's Office for financial damages incurred to the City.
