November 3: Cemetery Vandalism in Quinte

These represent far less than 10% of the vandalized stones in this cemetery.

How can a cemetery be kept safe? Public education about the cemetery is important, particularly among young community members. Keeping the cemetery grounds well-kept with signage, benches and visible trails helps to present an image of a busy and well-cared-for public space. This cemetery is one of the most beautiful, professionally-maintained and well-loved cemeteries in the area … and still this happened. Is it time for lighting and security cameras to monitor activity after dark?
