The list of uses for uav law enforcement solutions is already expensive as shown below. As an example police use drones in many ways and for many purposes including:

  • Police UAVs can cover a wide area more quickly than a patrol officer on foot.
  • UAV high-resolution cameras can capture bird’s-eye images of a an incident, which can help commanders identify a suspect’s location and deploy resources with full-situational awareness, such as whether a suspect is armed.
  • During night a UAV built with specific night-vision cameras can fly directly above an area where a foot pursuit is unfolding to record video that is geotagged and transmitted in real time relayed down to mobile command centers.
  • UAV technologies, including chemical, biological, radiological nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) allow command centers to better inform response teams what issues may be present on scene.
  • Having a mobile command center for drone deployment allows investigative or response teams working in remote areas to take their entire communication system with them. In urban areas, an aerial video provides actionable information so commanders can make informed decisions at the incident—whether at a bombing or a bank robbery.
  • Police supporting response team can launch a UAV over a wildfire or other natural disaster, map affected areas and respond appropriately.

It may be useful to note that many law enforcement agencies use the terms ‘unmanned aerial vehicle’, ‘unmanned aircraft’, or ‘unmanned aircraft system’ vs drones. This is due to the possible negative connotations attached to them. It may be construed that drones have the perception of pre-programmed or automatic flight patterns and random, indiscriminate collection of images and information.
