    If you always feel like somebody's watching you, well, it's only going to get worse.

    D.C.’s Homeland Security Agency soon will be keeping a much closer eye on everyone in the nation's capital.

    According to the Washington Examiner, the agency is planning to add thousands of security cameras throughout the District.

    It also plans to centralize all the camera feeds from private businesses, Metro and the housing authority.

    The city already centralized feeds for more than 4,500 cameras operated by the District Department of Transportation and D.C. Public Schools. Those feeds are monitored 24 hours a day.

    D.C.’s Homeland Security Agency said the cameras would be used to reduce crime and prevent terrorism.
