The Plans,Training, Research and Development Section began the study on Monday, April 6, 2015.

The results will be used to assist the Maui Police Department in making informed decisions about the implementation of this technology in the future.

For the study the Maui Police Department is using the Axon Body and Axon Flex Cameras by Taser International.
