Today’s episode is all about security companies, law enforcement and how they can utilize drones. We take a call from Jeremy in Westchester County, NY, who wants to know how he can convince his employer to incorporate drones into the work they do. Jeremy works for a security company that deals with residential burglary and fire alarm systems as well as radio transmissions between police stations and schools.
In an attempt to answer Jeremy’s questions, we talk about how security firms and law enforcement are already utilizing drones. We also talk about how these professions may use drones in the future. Paul, for one, is convinced that drone mapping can be used to solve all crime. Thanks for sparking such an interesting conversation Jeremy. Good luck and fly safe!
