Caltrain mulls new surveillance technology

Caltrain could improve its security and surveillance technology with the approval next week of a $633,000 contract for a new closed-circuit television system.

According to Caltrain documents, the new system would help deter vandalism and trespassing, while also helping officials coordinate regional response teams in the event of a catastrophe or a terrorist attack.

The transit agency’s Board of Directors will vote on the contract agreement at their regular meeting on Thursday. The contract is set to be awarded to the GTSI Corporation, a Virginia-based company.
