Graffiti – Art or Vandalism?
Fact No1: The Cost of graffiti clean-ups around Australia is staggering: In 2008 the estimated cost of graffiti clean-up across the country was $1.5 billion (Australian Institute of Criminology). This cost is passed on to the community through higher taxes, service costs, insurance premiums and council rates.
Fact No2: Reduced community perceptions of safety: In the 2005 household survey on crime by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 26 per cent of Victorians identified graffiti and vandalism as the third most important problem in their neighbourhood (after dangerous driving and theft from homes).
Fact No3: Increased perception by community of social decline: In accordance with the ‘broken windows theory’, graffiti in a neighbourhood signals that the authorities (such as police and local councils) and residents are not in control or are not concerned about the area. This encourages further criminal activity which can lead to economic decline and social instability locally (Dept of Justice, Victoria).
