Entire body cameras staying sought for Sangamon County Jail officers

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

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

Campbell claimed following some casual discussions with county board users about overall body cameras, he commenced analysis on the difficulty, which includes achieving out the Illinois Sheriffs’ Affiliation, in mid-March.

That predates the loss of life of Jaimeson Cody, a 39-yr-old Divernon guy who fell unresponsive after correctional officers used Tasers when Cody resisted wellness checks and attempts to handcuff him.
