Jackson County sheriff's deputies could be wearing body cameras as early as next year.

According to MLive, the cameras were approved this month by a county committee.

Earlier this year, Lansing police officers received their new body cameras.

The small recording devices are attached at each officer's uniform by a magnet.

The Jackson under-sheriff said in a statement to the affairs and agencies committee last month, the body cameras would be an asset for deputies on patrol.

Each deputy would be issued their own camera.
