Allow USB Device Installs (non-admin)

Our users do not have local admin privileges.  This requires an admin to add their credentials when a user attaches a USB camera to their computer.  

Is there a way to allow non-admins to install USB devices via a local policy or by giving the user’s account admin privileges to certain sections of the registry or OS files?
