Police have been wearing them for months - but should body-worn cameras be used even more widely to crack down on crime in our communities?
Sudbury Town Council, in Suffolk, thinks so. It's spent £2,000 on kitting out their four community wardens with the video equipment.
They say it will be vital in the fight against anti-social behaviour - but critics say that, in a time of austerity, it's a 'staggering' use of public money.
None of the footage captured so far has been used as evidence for prosecutions.
But the community wardens wearing them think they've made a difference.
