"On April 20, 1992, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request for a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) from traffic police officers at the Norfolk Police Department concerning the risk of cancer from the use of traffic radar devices which emit microwave radiation. On July 13, 1992, NIOSH investigators conducted a site visit. During the course of the visit, employees were interviewed, medical and employment records were reviewed, measurements of microwave exposure were made and work practices associated with the use of the radar units were assessed. Two main types of radar units were identified, hand held devices (radar guns) and fixed units, mounted in automobiles."
