DALLAS — Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is set to equip its light rail trains with security cameras that will include facial-recognition software, the Dallas Morning News reports.

DART has been eyeing security cameras on trains for about a decade. Calls for train cameras have often followed violent incidents or high-profile crimes on the light rail cars, which includes an incident last year when a man shot two fellow passengers on DART’s Red Line.

The agency is spending $4.8 million to outfit 48 of its 163 train cars this year. All trains should have cameras by 2018. For the full story, click here.
