The uniform will also make it clear that recording is taking place.
Perth and Kinross Council first introduced “body-worn” CCTV a couple of years ago and have found it has made a huge difference to the safety and morale of parking attendants.
Glasgow City Council's arm’s-length parking company also introduced the body cameras earlier this year.
Chair of South Lanarkshire Council’s Enterprise Resources Committee, Councillor Chris Thompson, said: “Our parking attendants should be able to go about their duties without the threat of verbal or physical assault.
“Parking restrictions are in place for a reason and our attendants are simply enforcing the legislation.
“To be subjected to physical and verbal assaults for doing this is not something we as a council are prepared to tolerate.
“I hope that the introduction of these cameras will provide a significant deterrent to anyone who thinks this kind of behaviour is acceptable.
“We will not hesitate to hand the recordings over to police if we feel the incident merits investigation.”
All 16 parking attendants in South Lanarkshire will have the cameras attached to their uniforms. The CCTV began operation on Monday.
