Arrive early for required security screening and anticipate large crowds.

During the inauguration. Metropolitan police plan to switch the surveillance cameras on at noon on Jan. 18 and keep them running 72 consecutive hours.


The cameras will also be up and running late on the night of Jan. 23, ahead of the annual march by abortion opponents. The video cameras will be on for 24 hours then.


The 14 cameras focus on various spots including the National Mall and Union Station. The pictures they transmit go to the Metropolitan Police Department's Joint Operations Command Center at police headquarters.


The cameras have been used in the past for events like the July 4 celebrations, antiwar protests and during Hurricane Isabel.
