Md. won't buy cameras for high-crime transit stops

Washington, D.C. Metro has installed 20 outdoor surveillance cameras to address an uptick in crime around rail stations, but the stations with the highest number of crimes were not among those getting the cameras.

The D.C. government paid $200,000 for 17 cameras, and Fairfax County provided $75,000 for four cameras, Metro officials said. But crime statistics show that Prince George's County had the four stations with the most crime last year.
