Staff Report

MIDLAND COUNTY - Midland Police won't be sporting body cameras after all but Midland County deputies might be.

Midland County Commissioners approved the switch over for the state grant on Monday.

The $17,000 grant was originally supposed go to the Midland Police Department.

They had to turn it down because of the timing.

We're told the department needed to do more research on what kind of cameras and technological support they would need as well as setting policies on them.

The sheriff's office previously showed interest for the body cameras when the grant was first announced.
