Recently, it has become more common for police, firefighters and other public safety agencies to use drones in law enforcement. As a result, we often get questions about drones from folks in law enforcement. Today, we take a call from Kevin, a police officer looking to purchase a drone for his agency.
Police officers should have a good idea of what their drone will be used for before they make any purchases for their department. There are a number of good options, each offering certain benefits to law enforcement agencies.
In order to help Kevin, we talk about some of the ways in which law enforcement might use drones. We discuss the various drones and cameras that might help them to protect and serve. Additionally, we outline the potential costs of purchase drones and outline ways to train and equip a department on a budget.Good luck Kevin! Fly safe!
