Drones, Drone Delivery and Law Enforcement: Understanding and Scaling Future Interactions

Drones, Drone Delivery and Law Enforcement: Understanding and Scaling Future Interactions

Drones have quickly become one of the preeminent security interests for public safety officials worldwide. Though most of the focus has be on how to detect, respond and counter rogue drones, little attention has been paid to the coming commercial interactions with drones that public safety will face. As drones are scaled into the low altitude airspace for infrastructure inspections, photography, and ultimately delivery, numerous law enforcement interactions will present. From the potential to be an additional source of evidentiary value - such as proximity during or around a criminal event(s), to drones being vandalized, damaged and cargo theft - law enforcement will be challenged to understand, navigate, and leverage this new technology.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Understand how drone technology is rapidly being integrated into the commercial operations of community’s law enforcement serves and what this will mean for their policing model.
2. Understand the ways in which drones will be capturing evidentiary data both from point to-point delivery systems, to video capture and how to think about leveraging that data to enhance their investigations.
3. Understand the various ways in which commercial drone operators may be calling on law enforcement to respond to interference with their operations and equipping their officers with knowledge to respond and investigate these calls.
