    I find this to be a great idea. BUT, I would hope the dept has technically savvy employees, that could set up a similar, maybe better, system for less than half the cost.

  2. Macroview says:

    This will be very useful and I’m surprised it took them this long to get onboard. (Considering the red tape and giant, slow-to-move organization, and precarious funding, maybe I’m not surprised…)

    The entire county as ONE of these… they need two dozen, and I guarantee that will happen soon as they recognize its usefulness. (And it WILL be used for surveillance, I don’t care what they say. They already do surveillance from extremely long range with manned helicopters.)

    BTW, “Unmanned Aircraft System” commonly known as a “drone.”

    The industry knows them as “UAV” (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), not a “UAS”.
