An increase in gang-related graffiti in Prince Albert’s downtown is prompting a call from police for public reporting.

The Prince Albert Police Service asked members of the public to help them tackle the issue by reporting graffiti on properties around the city. Police said they have recently received an large number of reports of gang-related graffiti, or tagging.

Police Spokesperson Alanna Adamko told paNOW the issue appears to be most concentrated in Prince Albert's downtown core.

Police have created a special file number for reports of graffiti, and asked the public to reference File #18-18554-Graffiti when reporting, in order to help police better track instances of tagging across the city.

Graffiti can be reported by calling the police service or by reporting online.

The police service also reminded residents that one of the best ways to curb graffiti is by removing it from buildings quickly. The City of Prince Albert offers free paint kits to residents or business owners who want to remove graffiti from their properties.
