Overall body cameras remaining sought for Sangamon County Jail officers

Sangamon County Sheriff Jack Campbell said he wants to equip correctional officers in the jail with overall body-worn cameras.

Campbell created his pitch at a Sangamon County Board jail committee assembly Tuesday.

Campbell claimed following some informal discussions with county board members about human body cameras, he started exploration on the challenge, like achieving out the Illinois Sheriffs’ Affiliation, in mid-March.

That predates the dying of Jaimeson Cody, a 39-calendar year-outdated Divernon male who fell unresponsive soon after correctional officers made use of Tasers when Cody resisted wellbeing checks and attempts to handcuff him.
