Smile (if possible) for the camera! Coming on the heels of the controversies over bag searches, increased crime and budget shortfalls, Metro will be installing cameras in every station.

According to the Washington Times, Metro has received a $2.8 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security to buy 105 color cameras.

When all is said and done, every single Metro station will have cameras installed.

Earlier this month, Metro Transit Police Chief Michael Taborn told the D.C. Council that some of Metro's cameras were 30 years old.

Installation is expected to begin sometime soon, and Taborn added that he expects the grant to be expedited so all the cameras could be installed within six months.
