Security for the Cemetery


The cemetery is in the process of utilizing digit security cameras to protect the cemetery against vandalism, crminal trespass, and other illegal activities.

On Sunday afternoon, March 21, 2010, I was contacted by a neighbor of the cemetery announcing that someone had dumped a number of gargage bags in front of the cemetery garage-office.

Upon investigating, I did indeed find five or six bags of grabage in front of Bay door #1.

A search of the security system found acrivity at approximately 18:46:45. The time was actually an hour later as the system has not been adjusted for daylight savings.

The guilty individual can be seem reentering his car after having removed the garbage bags from the trunk of his car and dumping them in the street in fron of the cemetery.

He then proceeds mto drive away. The datardly deed took only 1 minute and he is gone.

Please keep in mind that the images shown here were taken of a sreen shot by a hand-held digital camera.

Hopefully the cameras will act as a deterent, but it is doubtful we will be able to actyallt identify anyone captured on camera.
