What is Gang Graffiti?

Graffiti is a means of non-verbal communication used by gangs to mark their territory, threaten violence, honor dead members of the gang, and advertise for recruits. It is also used to show disrespect to rival gangs. Gang members will cross out, reverse, crack, or turn symbols upside down to show disrespect to their rivals. This type of gang activity might appear insignificant, but it is usually the first sign of a gang's presence in a neighborhood, and depending on the markings, may indicate future violence or criminal activity. Residents should not confront or attempt to stop graffiti vandals if they witness the crime being committed, they should report it to the police.
Gangs use graffiti to:
  • Mark territory
  • Intimidate residents
  • Challenge other gangs
  • Respond to rival gangs
  • Display strength/status
