Two surveillance cameras have been installed at the Community Park Roller Rink.
According to trustee Dennis Donnelly, vandalism was the catalyst for the installation.
The cameras, which cost approximately $25,000, are the first to be installed, he said.
Graffiti that said, "Let Us Play" was discovered on the rink's outer wall in April. Graffiti was also found in the vicinity of the roller rink in March 2012.
In June of this year, eight teens from West Hempstead and Franklin Square were issued appearance tickets for trespass when they were busted with fireworks at the park.
The hockey rink redevelopment project was completed just in time for the spring season, which kicked off in April. More than 350 residents use the roller hockey program. Residents are also allowed to use the rink on "open time" for their own use, according to Kevin Ocker, chair of the Board of Commissioners of Cultural and Recreational Affairs.
