What Are Some Applications of Police Drones?

Police departments can take advantage of the incredible potential of drones in many ways. From keeping police officers out of harm’s way while gathering situational awareness, to suspect monitoring and tactical entry, drones can go a long way to help make our society safer.

Search and Rescue - One of the most popular uses of drones by police agencies is Search and Rescue. Drones can cover territory much more quickly and efficiently than officers can on foot or even by vehicle. Moreover, drones can go under tree cover or between buildings, enabling access to locations that helicopters can’t. Drones equipped with thermal cameras mean that officers can easily spot a lost or missing person hidden under debris or undergrowth, even at night.

Tracking - 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 automatically track and follow an individual or vehicle on the move. The drone can also provide more information on the suspect scenario as the situation develops.

Officer Safety - An aerial perspective can provide vital information in dangerous situations such as active shooter scenes or in an investigation of illegal operations. A drone 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. High-risk traffic stops also can be made safer by the use of drones. 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.

Monitoring - Operators can 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.

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. Officers can use photographs and maps produced by automated drone camera software to analyze the sequence of a crash for accident reporting and evidence and document the series of events related to an incident.

Drones Helps Police Find Suspects

Searching for Lost Persons or Suspects

Learn About The Drone Products and Technology Available for Police

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 drone packages that include the necessary features to meet the demands required of police drones.

DJI Matice 300 RTK

The DJI Matrice 300 RTK is DJI’s flagship enterprise model. This drone features a Discrete Mode that turns off all LEDs on the aircraft, which renders the drone nearly undetectable against the night sky - crucial for operations that require stealth. When paired with the Teledyne FLIR Vue TZ20 Dual Thermal Camera payload, law enforcement operators are given up to 20x thermal zoom to support situational awareness. This superior imaging fidelity frees operators from the potentially dangerous requirement to fly low to effectively distinguish objects in thermal view. Depending on the scenario, operators can simply hover over the area to scan it, zooming in to identify objects as necessary, which enhances safety and efficiency. Alternatively, the Matrice 300 RTK can be paired with the DJI Zenmuse H20. The H20’s Night Scene Mode allows operators to see infrared light sources invisible to the naked eye, such as IR strobes. Operators can also use the H20’s built-in laser range finder to accurately measure distances - a crucial feature for planning law enforcement operations. These are only a few of the features that the Matrice 300 can bring to the table for law enforcement.

The DSLRPros Ultimate Police Drone package features all of this technology and more in one complete package.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced

Don’t be fooled by the compact size and portability of the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced- it’s an impressively powerful tool, with a broad set of features that make it an extremely effective drone for police work. Obstacle sensing and sense and avoid features make the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced a user-friendly choice. The password protected loggin for drone operation and data access ensure that your information stays secure.

The M2EA’s payload combines a visual camera with a radiometric thermal sensor to provide the capabilities essential for most public safety missions. The thermal imaging allows for easily locating persons in a law enforcement or Search and Rescue scenario, while the powerful zoom camera allows operators to view important details while keeping themselves out of harm’s way.

The Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced also offers a range of optional, top-mounted use case-specific payloads: a beacon, a spotlight, and a loudspeaker. Law enforcement can use the beacon and spotlight in nighttime operations to improve safety or provide lighting where needed. The speaker can have potential applications in hostage, shooter, or other high-risk criminal situations to give instructions and information to those on the ground. Law enforcement agencies can opt for the DSLRPros Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced Urban Scout Package. This bundle is a complete UAV solution that includes accessories and payloads specifically tailored for law enforcement use cases.

Matrice 200 V2 with Z30 and XT2

One of our top picks for law enforcement work is the Matrice 200 V2 and its features, including enhanced intelligent control systems, flight performance, and added flight safety and data security features. The Matrice 200 V2 series drones boast an IP rating of 43, making them ready to handle missions in all kinds of weather conditions. The ability of the M200 V2 to carry multiple payloads makes it an extremely flexible tool for a variety of law enforcement applications.

Compatible payloads include the Zenmuse XT2, which houses dual visual and thermal sensors. Using FLIR’s MSX capability, the XT2’s images are enhanced by visual data overlay for missions where thermal imagery is critical, giving you the clearest image possible.

The Zenmuse Z30 is among the most powerful integrated aerial zoom cameras on the market, with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification of up to 180x. This imaging ability is a valuable asset in police applications such as monitoring and Search and Rescue.

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.

Tracking

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.

Officer Safety

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.

Monitoring

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.
