Description

In September 2005, the Secretary of Public Safety and Security began authorizing the purchase and use of ECWs by police departments within the Commonwealth. This report will examine the data captured by those departments and reported to EOPSS on a quarterly basis, including the number of times each device was fired, and the gender and race/ethnicity of the targets (see Appendix A for reporting form).
