Local Police Drones Are on the Increase Nationwide

 SUPPORT UKRAINE/DONATE NOW 

CNN’s Chris Lawrence reports local police departments are looking to drones to boost their surveillance capability.

Local drones can use thermal cameras that are so sensitive, they can “see” footprints following a person that is walking.

Accountability is a big question, because a camera up in the clouds, out of sight, can track a person. There is also concern that information about a person could be collected without that person being a suspect in a crime.

The FAA and drone experts expect an increase of thousands of drones in the skies over the next decade.
