New York State Police launch drone program

New York State Police launch drone program”

The New York State Trooper Foundation, a non-profit organization formed in 1984 to support the State Police, is donating 16 of the drones systems. By April, an additional 14 aerial drones will be deployed around the state.

Four unmanned aerial drone systems will be deployed to various locations upstate this month and will assist with disaster response, traffic safety and other law enforcement missions, officials said. Some of the jobs performed by drones may be too unsafe for human police officers to conduct.

Among the benefits listed for the use of drones were reduced costs compared to manned aircraft, improved response times and increased efficiency in operations. One of the ways the drones will help is by documenting and reconstructing serious vehicle accidents on the road fast than usual. The drones can also be used in risky situations, including natural disasters, to keep troopers safe.

The troopers who operate the drones will have to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, plus they will undergo 32 hours of hands-on training. "We will continue to implement innovative technologies to improve our ability to protect New Yorkers across this great state". In a statement, Cuomo's office said using this technology will help speed up the process, resulting in shorter road closures and less impact on drivers.

Additionally, all footage obtained by these drones will be deleted after 30 days as long as it doesn't serve any law enforcement purposes. "This funding will give prosecutors and local police agencies the resources they need to help protect their communities and create a fairer and more just criminal justice system for all".
