How can I tell the difference between these three types of graffiti?
You probably can’t. One type of graffiti usually looks much like another. Gangs and taggers alike use their own preferred colors, signatures, symbols or names. Certain major street gangs identify themselves by wearing certain colors and use these same colors in their graffiti to intentionally identify themselves. Vandal graffiti is often obscene and anonymous. These are very general descriptions and any type of graffiti may take on the characteristics of the other types. The content being communicated is not generally discernible to the average person. Specialized police courses are available which instruct our detectives to draw conclusions based on information gained in previous investigations.
