Offensive graffiti has been sprayed on the Armed Forces careers office in Canterbury.
The anti-military and police slogans were daubed in purple paint on the centre in St Peters Street overnight.
One read "F**k the Army" while another, scrawled on the door, read "ACAB" which is thought to stand for "All Coppers Are B******s".
Staff arrived at work this morning to find the foul-mouthed messages, but they have since been scrubbed off.
Army spokesman Sarah Kingshott said: "We can confirm the graffiti incident did happen.
"It wasn't just the careers office that was affected. Because other shops were involved, it has become a police matter.
"They are dealing with it, and there is an ongoing investigation."
Police spokesman Nicola Forman added: "Kent Police was called this morning at 8.10 to reports of criminal damage that occurred at a building in St Peters Street, Canterbury.
"Details have been taken and enquiries are ongoing."
It is thought the neighbouring Barretts car showroom was also targeted by vandals, but no one was available for comment.
