Ocean City buses and vans could soon have cameras – around 400 of them all told if the town council agrees.

WBOC reports that there is a federal grant for the cameras and that Maryland Transportation Authority has said it will help with the financing.

The feds would cough up $400-thousand while the state and resort would add another $50-thousand.

The resort’s Transportation Committee has said that the cost is reasonable given the safety and insurance considerations.

Officials say the cameras would help prevent vandalism and other illegal activity.

If you’re in Ocean City chances are you have already been caught on camera.

But the resort is investing $200-thousand into 9 more surveillance cameras to keep an eye on the boardwalk.

Ocean City police say they are hoping that they will cut down on crime.

The new cameras are expected to be in operation by Memorial Day.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Frederick County authorities showed off some technology designed to catch drivers who illegally pass school buses.

Officials from the sheriff's office and the public school system demonstrated the school-bus cameras Tuesday morning in Frederick.

The Frederick News-Post reports that Frederick is the first county in Maryland to permanently install cameras on buses under a state law passed last year. The state education department says Charles, Montgomery and Washington counties are running pilot programs this year.
