Roane County sheriff’s deputies have begun wearing body cameras.
The sheriff’s office has had the cameras since at least February, but Chief Deputy Tim Phillips said they were waiting to formalize policy and conduct training before rolling them out.
He said Friday that the deputies have been wearing the cameras for about a week.
“So far things are going pretty good,” he said.
Many law enforcement agencies across the state and the country have chosen to equip officers with body cameras in recent years.
