What Are Some Applications of Police Drones?
Police departments worldwide can take advantage of the incredible potential of unmanned aircraft systems in many emergency situations and tactical operations. From keeping police officers out of harm's way while gathering situational awareness, to suspect monitoring and tactical entry, law enforcement drone use can go a long way to help local authorities make our society safer.
Search and Rescue
One of the most popular uses of flying drones by police agencies is Search and Rescue Operations. Drones can cover territory much more quickly and efficiently than officers can on foot or even by vehicle. Moreover, unmanned aerial vehicles can go under tree cover or between buildings, enabling access to locations that helicopters and other manned aircraft can't.
Drones equipped with thermal sensors mean that police officers can easily spot a lost or missing person hidden under debris or undergrowth, even at night.
Law enforcement can apprehend subjects on the run with the aid of Police drones. Many of our Police Drones feature object tracking capabilities that can conduct surveillance and automatically track and follow an individual or vehicle on the move. The drone footage can also provide more information on the suspect scenario as the situation develops.
Much like the use of footage from police body cameras, an aerial perspective can provide vital information in dangerous situations such as active shooter scenes or in an investigation of illegal operations. Drone operators can discreetly assess the situation from a distance, getting both the big picture and minute details with zoom cameras while increasing the safety of law enforcement officers.
When used to monitor traffic stops and other potential high-risk situations, officers are made safer by the use of drone flights. In situations where a suspect is refusing to get out of a vehicle, the officers can deploy a drone to assess the situation or even provide two-way communication while keeping a safe distance.
Operators can utilize their own departments' aerial surveillance programs to search and scan the entire scene for suspicious behavior in crowd monitoring scenarios or otherwise locate individuals in distress. Zoom and thermal cameras here again play a vital role in their ability to see the overall view and the tiniest of details in the scene- a far cry from the traditional cameras available on a civilian drone.
Reporting and Analysis
In conjunction with an aerial perspective, mapping software can play a significant role in the reconstruction of traffic collisions, or crime scenes. An agency can use photographs and maps produced by automated drone camera software to aid in the reporting, required field evidence collection and documentation of accident scenes. With limited time normally available to collect this data, the use of law enforcement drones in these scenarios can increase efficiency and accuracy exponentially.
Learn About The Advantage of Drones and the Advanced Technology Available for Police Use
Thermal drones are essential for emergency response. Instead of sending first responders into an unknown and potentially unsafe situation, a drone can scan the area to locate dangers ahead of time. When used with zoom or infrared cameras, the drone can detect hot spots, people, or other hazards in adverse and other low-visibility scenarios.
DSLRPros carries a variety of drones and unmanned aerial vehicle packages that include the necessary features to meet the demands required of police drones.
