HARTFORD - (AP) - Connecticut is receiving $5.2 million in federal money for increased transit security including video cameras at train stations.
Gov. M. Jodi Rell says the Homeland Security money will be used by the state departments of Transportation and Emergency Management and Homeland Security to improve surveillance and other security measures at train stations.
The federal transit security program provides money to key high-threat urban areas for transit such as bus, ferry and rail systems.
Connecticut's Homeland Security grant will help pay for installation of fiber optic cables along railroad rights of way for video cameras.
