TWINSBURG, OH (WOIO) -

Twinsburg Police takes advantage of new technology. Beginning Wednesday some patrol officers will be given body cams to use while on the job.

The equipment was purchased with grant money.

Since the department has more officers than body cams, not every officer will be able to utilize the new technology. The shift sergeant will distribute one at the beginning of each shift.

Cleveland Heights began the process this week of testing body cams. Traffic officers are using them and the chief of police says he'd like the entire force to have them by the end of the year.

Cleveland Police won't wear body cameras until sometime early next year.
