fences and theft

Hi all,
Our garden is in a school ground, in a low-income neighbourhood and most of the gardeners have experienced the frustration of things being stolen out of their plots.  In the last week, one of the gardeners installed a nearly 6-foot tall chain-link fence with a locked gate around their plot.  Now I completely understand and sympathize with the feelings that caused this gardener to take such action, but the fact remains that the new fence feels out of place in a community garden.  The gardeners have discussed this problem of theft many times before, but never has this been seen as the right kind of solution.
2 questions: first, do any community gardens have rules about fences around plots?  second, can you share your creative and effective solutions for dealing with theft?
