Metro Is Watching
Metro has installed 20 exterior surveillance cameras at 12 Metrorail stations in the District and Fairfax County. The costs were paid for by the individual jurisdictions.
In the District, which provided Metro $200,000 for the cameras, they were installed at the following stations: Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood, Congress Heights, Deanwood, Minnesota Avenue, Fort Totten, Takoma, Brookland-CUA, Columbia Heights, Georgia Avenue-Petworth, and Tenleytown-AU.
In Fairfax County, which provided $75,000, the cameras are at the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU and Franconia-Springfield stations.
Metro transit police identified stations where external cameras could help deter and prevent crime. But individual jurisdictions had to provide the funding.
