INTRODUCTION
Vandalism is a criminal act against property -- but when it's your property being damaged, it affects on a personal level. You feel violated, and wonder how such a thing could have happened to you. While vandalism hurts -- and more than just in the pocketbook -- there are ways that you can preventing vandalism. Like other crimes against property and people, the first step to preventing vandalism is understanding the crime. Vandalism the willful destruction or defacing of property—is a crime. It’s expensive to repair. It makes our communities unattractive and unsafe. Vandalism has a tendency to decline during winter months when individuals spend less time outside and on Saturdays and Sundays when public buildings and open spaces are under greater scrutiny. Vandalism occurs most often at night, when fewer people are around and property isn't under as much scrutiny.

Therefore, it is often done as an expression of contempt, creativity, or both. Vandalism is only a meaningful concept in a culture that recognizes history and archaeology. Like other similar terms (Barbarian/barbary, and Philistine), the term Vandal was originally an ethnic slur referring to the Vandals, who under Geiseric sacked Rome in 455. The Vandals, like the Philistines, no longer exist as an identifiable ethnic group. The term in its modern acceptance was coined in January 1794 during the French Revolution, by Henri Grégoire, constitutional bishop of Blois, in his report directed to the Republican Convention, where he used word Vandalisme to describe some aspects of the behaviour of the republican army. In 455 A.D., Vandals, an ancient tribe of people from Northern Europe, invaded Rome. The invasion was...
