Vandalism is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime. We aim to prevent vandalism with initiatives such as CCTV, street wardens and improved street lighting. Where vandalism has taken place on public property we will carry out repairs.
Please note that we are not responsible for vandalism to the following:
Privately owned street furniture: Telephone boxes, some bus shelters and electricity boxes are the responsibility of the company that put them there.
Railway property including bridges: Reports of vandalism are dealt with by British Transport Police.
Environment Agency Property
We will endeavour to pass on your report to the correct organisation; however we cannot guarantee an outcome.
Graffiti, along with other environmental crimes is a sign of an uncaring and indifferent society , the visual impact of which can rapidly diminish the desirability of an area.
Flyposting is putting up unauthorised posters and stickers, usually adverts, in public places. Flyposting is unsightly and spoils the environment. Report an incident of flyposting via our online form.
Vandalism of non-council property should be reported to the West Midlands Police where applicable.
