Media Guidelines / Fact Sheet

Denver Partners Against Graffiti (DPAG) asks:

Please photograph abatement crew member(s) from behind or from the side. 
Please photograph graffiti tags out of focus or partially removed 

  • Tags are like brand names, and taggers want their "work" to be seen. A tagger’s motivation is exposure, exposure, exposure, and what better way to gain exposure - and notoriety - than through mass media? By blurring the graffiti, the tag isn't readable.

Please do not disclose exact locations:

  • Of recently cleaned areas. This is an open invitation announcing clean “canvasses” for taggers
  • Of recently hit or tagged areas. This makes the properties in the area more vulnerable
  • Of areas where property owners and residents are diligently maintaining their communities. Taggers see this as a battlefield – where they must win

Please encourage the public to be pro-active.
