The East, Centre and Calton Local Community Planning Partnership has approved a grant of £6250 to buy seven body-mounted cameras.
These will be used by police officers in B Division, which covers Glasgow North-East and East Dunbartonshire and could be on the streets early next month.
The officers will be seen in the areas around London Road, Baird Street, Shettleston, Easterhouse and Baillieston, Maryhill and Saracen and other towns such as Bishopriggs and Lenzie.
East End Councillor Frank Docherty is backing the scheme.
He said: "I am exceptionally pleased the community planning partnership has been able to award this grant.
"This technology will benefit locals as it is a valuable tool in the battle against unlawful activity including antisocial behaviour and underage drinking."
As reported by the Evening Times, body cameras have been very effective in increasing the number of convictions in the Strathclyde area. And the Body Worn Video project, a partnership between Renfrewshire Council and Strathclyde Police, received a top honour at the Scottish Policing Awards.
Chief Inspector Pat O'Callaghan, from London Road police station, said the cameras would make a big difference in the community.
He said: "They will make a significant difference. They will provide us with additional evidential material which will have a positive impact when it comes to presenting cases at court.
"They will provide audio and visual footage in dealing with acts of disorder, picking up additional pictures in areas not covered by CCTV."
He said they could also help in suspected domestic abuse cases where "a picture paints a thousand words".
The cameras will pick up a sense of atmosphere in interactions and show how victims have suffered.
Mr Callaghan added: "They are addressing the concerns of the community, which when you look at recent surveys still revolve around anti-social behaviour and violence, so it gives us an additional tool in terms of tackling them.
"It will certainly make residents feel safer because they will know there is additional evidence there that will help us get a conviction."
