Updated September 10, 2021

The best deterrent is swift removal, so residents are encouraged to call the hotline whenever you see unsightly graffiti around town. report graffiti using GoRequest.

When contacting the City, please try to be as specific as possible to help the work crews find the mess. Include on your message the exact address, if possible, and which object has been defaced, whether it is a building, wall, street sign or curb.

The City aims to remove graffiti within 48 hours after it has been reported.

We appreciate your help in making Cerritos a clean, safe place to live, work and play.
