The Graffiti Hotline Committee was formed in 1995, when PCA business leaders saw a rise in graffiti throughout the city and recognized its negative impact on economic investment. Over the years, the Committee has developed a direct relationship with the Phoenix Police Department and Maricopa County officials in promoting awareness and coordinating reward monies on a quarterly basis.
By encouraging graffiti reporting at the individual and neighborhood level, a number of successful arrests have been made, amounting to in excess of $280,000 in rewards to date. The long-term vision of this Committee is to combat graffiti in the Downtown Core and surrounding areas, in addition to increasing communication with the Phoenix Police Department, Maricopa County, local school districts, and neighborhood groups.
