POLICE DRONE INFOGRAPHIC
Learn about police and law enforcement UAV trends.
The application of drones equipped with optical, zoom, and/or thermal cameras allow law enforcement agents to monitor unfolding crime scenes more accurately and at a safer distance. A quickly deployable camera drone allows officials to have a better vantage point during times of chaotic situations where deploying ground personnel is too risky. Aerial vantage points also allow post-accident scenes or crime scenes to be fully documented and reconstructed to help understand the timeline of events for each incident. The reliance only on ground assets to respond to emergency events increases threats to the safety of the community and emergency personnel and decreases the efficiency and effectiveness of the emergency response. Drones for public safety act as a force multiplier and cost a fraction of what manned helicopters require. In response to active shooters, IEDs, or armed hostage situations the sUAS (small unmanned aerial system) can observe threats from a safe vantage point allowing law enforcement on the scene to operate with greater safety. The Matrice 300 RTK with a Zenmuse XT2, H20T camera or a DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual Thermal Drone provides law enforcement with the tools necessary to respond appropriately to emergency situations when situational awareness is key.
