Dallas’ rapid transit system is going to install surveillance cameras in all 55 of its light rail stations by the end of 2011, according to published reports.
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has cameras operational at six of the system’s rail stations, and is allocating $6 million to install cameras in the remaining 49 stations.
The system will keep watch over riders, rail platforms and ticket machines, and will be monitored in real-time, on a rotating basis. However, cameras that are not monitored will continue recording in order to preserve a record of activities occurring there, according to DART officials.
In addition, the video surveillance will not extend to rail station parking lots, police patrols are expected to provide security in the parking areas.
