Portland_Graffiti_Removal_Broken Windows Theory — The Importance of Removing Graffiti

Graffiti can make your city’s residential and commercial areas look bad, but did you know that’s not the worst of it? Graffiti, left unaddressed, can make your city less safe. Removing graffiti in a timely manner is essential to keeping yourself and your loved ones safe.

The Broken Windows Theory

The reason why graffiti poses a real risk is clear when you consider the Broken Windows Theory. This criminological theory states that visible signs of crime, anti-social behavior, and civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages further crime and disorder, including serious crimes. In theory, minor signs of crime, such as broken windows or graffiti, can encourage those so inclined to commit more crimes that could grow in magnitude.

How does removing such visible signs of crime help deter further crime? The Broken Windows Theory suggests that policing methods that target minor crimes such as vandalism, public drinking, and fare evasion help to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, thereby preventing more serious crimes. If you want to maintain the atmosphere of lawfulness in your neighborhood or place of business, then having graffiti quickly and efficiently removed is key.
