Vandals Damage Sports Equipment at Commack HIgh School

Commack school officials do not have any witnesses or video of the act.


Vandals destroyed sports equipment at Commack High School last week, and police are looking for anyone who might have information.

Suffolk County police report that a 911 was received from Pat Friel, Commack's athletic director, at approximately 1:30 p.m. Sept. 14. Friel said two soccer nets had been cut up overnight while the equipment was left on the fields. 

Police said that Commack school officials do not have any witnesses or security footage of the vandals. No arrests have been made in this case.

Or maybe we were just told they needed to buy cameras, the budget gets voted yes and low an behold - where are the cameras???? Or better yet, who's friend or relative got the contract for these high tech cameras that obviously are not doing the job that they were supposed too???

At one point some years ago they did have good camera coverage. I wonder if they didn't properly maintain them.

After several graffiti incidents on the football field and track over the years, one would think there would be cameras all over that area

Jack: No, no cameras in that area, they have been moved to the intersection of Scholar & Townline to get motorists making right turns on red.

I remember being told that the whole reason for cameras out on the field was because of past vandalism, etc., and that one of the bond issues had improved the coverage. As to the traffic light, the district can't issue tickets; the county would have to install a set of traffic light cameras.
