Law enforcement operations have long been enhanced by technology, but some technological advancements are true game-changers.

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), more commonly known as drones, is one such technology. These systems allow officers to “see” what they cannot visualize with their own eyes and to “go” places they cannot – or cannot safely – physically access.

Drones can be deployed for assistance with much lower cost than manned aircraft and can provide similar situational overwatch during law enforcement tactical operations such as during foot or vehicle pursuits, suspect searches, hostage or active shooter situations, major traffic crashes, search and rescue, correctional facility security and critical infrastructure security.

This Police1 guide provides information on what law enforcement agencies need to consider when determining how to integrate this technology into their equipment cache.

Included in this guide:

  • Key considerations before purchasing
  • Questions to ask vendors
