Subway Train Under Full Surveillance

In an effort to deter crime, the New York MTA is planning to fully equip one subway train with security cameras that record every inch of the interior.

The one train program is just a pilot for now, as officials determine the utility of the system. They're not sure if they'll be able to expand the program, mainly due to budgetary constraints.

"For now, however, the pilot program is very inexpensive - free, in fact. The equipment was provided by an unidentified vendor, which will also cover installation costs.

The cameras will not be monitored in real time, however, because of financial constraints. Instead, the footage will be stored in a central database. (The New York Post reported on the project on Tuesday.)"
