Does Anyone know where Drones have been used for law Enforcement?

Comments

  1. Not one European country that trialed sUAS continued to use them. RCMP recently had this success http://www.suasnews.com/2013/05/22826/life-saving-rescue-could-be-game-changer-for-drone-adoption/ My money is on persistent platforms that services like the Police buy data from. Perhaps flown by the military. 

    Here in South Africa high altitudes and temperatures in summer make operating small stuff fairly tricky!

  2. Essex and Merseyside have both abandoned sUAS http://www.suasnews.com/2011/10/9678/merseyside-police-microdrone-lost-in-the-mersey/ Not sure about Staffs, Thales has a better plan for UK Police forces.

  3. They also had a tethered balloon which was bought put in a cupboard and never used. When taken out to use it was perished and had to be binned....

  4. Lots of attempts to do so across the US and Canada. Depends also which level of enforcement your speaking of.

  5. I believe the Seattle police department here in the US had a small UA, but there was such a loud public outcry that the department returned their aircraft. http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020312864_spddronesxml.html

  7. Mark Rosser I think in certain Areas it a bit more essential. Crime is getting a bit out of hand. But I am Interested in looking into the matter, so that is why I ask about using Drones as an answer. But I See that England is upbeat about using Drones though...

Hey Kevin- sorry you cannot make it to ISTAS13. You were the first person I thought of when planning for keynotes after Marvin Minsky- you really were instrumental in pushing veillance as a domain, as soon as you embraced uberveillance...  http://www.kevinwarwick.com/   http://www.kevinwarwick.com/
