Alternate Title

Building and managing a successful public safety UAS program




1 online resource (v, 62 pages)


“As sUAS technology continues to mature and the barriers to its use continue to shrink, law enforcement, and public safety more generally, will likely see a proliferation of the technology, some of which has already been seen over the past two years. As such, there will be many agencies, particularly those lacking aviation experience, that will require education and guidance in establishing and maintaining an effective, lawful, and publicly accepted sUAS program. This report aims to address that need by discussing the benefits and applications of sUAS technology; examining major obstacles to successful implementation; identifying important considerations and lessons learned in building and managing an sUAS program; and providing examples of developed programs. It is intended that this report will help not only those agencies interested in starting sUAS programs, but also those agencies looking for guidance on how to sustain and grow their existing sUAS programs.”--Page 2.
