This article from the July-August 2018 issue of TECHBeat reports on a new web-based resource available from the Justice Technology Information Center (JTIC) on the opportunities and challenges in the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) by law enforcement agencies.
This resource is a sub-site of JUSTNET, the website of the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC). This resource was prompted by law enforcement's increasing interest in using small UAS for accident reconstruction, search and rescue, and other emergencies.
The UAS home page is designed to showcase video content and provide direct links to a new page of agency success stories, frequently asked questions about public safety and UAS, and information on how an agency can establish a UAS program. The new sub-site also features an updated collection of resource materials and publications.
