STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department will soon have new security cameras and camera system. 

During Monday's board of supervisor's meeting, county leaders approved the funds for the cameras and the camera system in the county jail, reports the Starkville Daily News. 

The Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department says the current camera system is outdated and began to lose the functionality of some cameras. 

The new system will also double the department's cameras in the jail from 26 cameras to 72. 

The newspaper reports the new system will also hold video surveillance tapes for up to three months.
