The call by the community for increased security around a community building, in this article in the Herald Sun, is well-founded: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/north-west/campbellfield-community-centre-makes-urgent-call-for-extra-security/news-story/536577b80e6d6940396855ec71991ae6.
It’s such a shame that people who could actually benefit from the community centre are instead involved in its damage.
Research clearly shows that the following measures will kerb the rate of vandalism and graffiti to properties:
Security patrols and CCTV, and signage advising of these measures
Keeping the area well lit
Planting along the wall
Removing any graffiti rapidly, and then applying anti-graffiti coatings to the surface
Painting obvious surfaces for graffiti with a community created mural instead
