WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - The Maui Police Department is considering outfitting officers with body-worn cameras.

The Maui News reports that the department has requested proposals from vendors for a technology system. Vendors have until March 25 to submit proposals for testing the cameras.

Assistant Chief John Jakubczak says the request doesn't mean the department will begin using cameras, but instead is an indication that they are seriously considering their options.

MPD has received two grants totaling less than $200,000 toward the purchase of a body-worn camera system.
