Tag the tagger
A ‘tag the tagger’ booklet has been published which provides people with more information and advice about how they can help take action. The booklet is available from the Upper Hutt Central Library, the i-SITE and council offices.

Despite the explosion of graffiti, it has actually been quite difficult to catch culprits ‘in the act’. The council and the Police are encouraging anyone who witnesses a graffiti offence occurring to act quickly by phoning 111 and reporting the act in progress. Where possible the Police will get a car there as quick as possible.
Any information on the identity of taggers is also appreciated. Anyone with information can contact CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email email@example.com. A fund has been established as a reward for the identification of taggers currently unknown to Police and the provision of evidence that leads to a resolution of their case.
