SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich (kuh-NEZ’-oh-vich) is stepping up his campaign to outfit 150 patrol deputies with body cameras.

The sheriff says recording use of force situations would keep the county out of costly lawsuits.

KXLY reports (http://bit.ly/1BxNrh5 ) the sheriff favors a video camera that would be mounted on glasses or ball caps so it would record what the deputy sees.

The city of Spokane is currently testing body cameras on 17 officers and deciding whether to put them on all Spokane officers next year.
