The Maui Police Department reports that a recent body camera pilot project has since concluded and was met with positive feedback from the ten volunteer officers involved.
The 30 day trail program concluded on May 5, 2015, and was launched to assist the department in determining their ability to make an informed decision about the implementation of the technology.
Department officials say Maui police continue to research alternative body-worn camera vendors, feasibility issues and funding resources.
As part of the assessment, officers involved weighed in on ease of use, durability, quality of audio/video and connectivity/software of the tested equipment.
The pilot project was led by the Plans, Training, Research and Development Section of the department.
