Graffiti is one of those crimes that is regarded as harmless by the people who do it. But graffiti blights an area, is intimidating, is often offensive and is expensive to clean up.

The council works closely with Strathclyde Police to stamp out this problem and now we're asking you to turn graffiti detective and help us put names against the tags that scar Renfrewshire.

If you know who is responsible, please contact the Police or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Calls to Crimestoppers are free and you don't have to give your name if you don't want to.
