Gov. Nikki Haley will sign a bill helping South Carolina police get body cameras.
Haley will be surrounded by lawmakers and family members of an unarmed motorist killed in April by a North Charleston police officer when she makes the bill law Wednesday afternoon.
The bill requires police agencies to create a policy on which officers will wear the cameras, when they should and should not be recording and how the videos are stored.
If the policy is approved, agencies could get money for cameras that will be set aside by lawmakers next year.

The bills were filed before the session started, but became a priority after Walter Scott was shot several times in the back as he ran from an officer who was later charged with murder.
