If your community has a skate park then you know protecting it and keeping it clean from trash, vandalism, and graffiti is challenging. And if the park is not kept clean the reputation of the park is at stake. When the skate park’s reputation takes a downturn, it can turn into an avalanche.
Skate parks are designed and implemented into the community to improve the park experience. According to the Tony Hawk Foundation, a majority of police-enforcement officers consider their skate park to be an asset and is a positive addition to the park. This is good news.
Skate parks add so much fun for the community for adults and children alike. The positive aspect of this type of activity is endless. A lot of children today are over-weight and need activities that entice them to get out and move. Skate boarding is an activity that does just that.
However, trash, graffiti, and vandalism are some of the major issues at a skate park and will damage the reputation of the park. Once graffiti and vandalism have started, it is a battle to keep it away. Even worse graffiti and vandalism attract more serious crimes. An upkept Skate Park is also less appealing and gives off the sense that the park is not safe. An abandoned Skate Park will fall prey to all sorts of crimes that a park’s department will not want to deal with.
To prevent negative behavior and quality of life crimes that threaten the reputation of the skate park, measures need to be taken.
Skate Park Cameras are designed to specifically stop negative behavior at parks. They are not just cameras that passively take pictures.
