Graffiti Abatement Program

HCSO’s Graffiti Abatement Program

The HCSO’s Graffiti Abatement program is designed to remove unwanted graffiti markings from the communities within Harris County. The graffiti is often perpetrated by gang members who want to mark their territory or send a message to another gang.

The HCSO’s Graffiti Abatement program is a FREE service for all citizens and businesses in the unincorporated areas of Harris County. It aids the community by reducing or eliminating this type of criminal mischief through our abatements, and thus making each neighborhood or business safer and aesthetically pleasing for the citizens of Harris County.
