Do they have cameras in the cars? I mean with people stealing Iphones n stuff and it getting worse you'd think they would and i never noticed cameras on the trains. The Platforms and stations yes but not the trains themselves.

Might be too expensive. There are 6,000+ subway cars. It wouldn't be just the cost of the cameras, but the entire security system.

Vandalism would be a big issue i guess, and the money too. But i remember reading awhile back that the MTA planned on putting cameras on at least a couple hundred trains. I guess it never went through.

The city would never utilize police to stop for small stolen items.
The cameras wouldn't be wireless either as they could monitor behavior, track the perp, and stop people before leaving their stations.

The subways have relatively low amounts of incidents for the mass amount of riders.
