    Putting Drones to Work for Public Safety and Resilience

    Police, fire and emergency agencies are increasingly using drones to capture criminal suspects and fight fires. In fact, according to a 2017 report, at least 350 local police, sheriff, fire and emergency units in the United States have acquired drones. This session will explore how local governments are utilizing this emerging technology – including funding and training – and tailoring drone usage to best meet their public safety needs and saving money in the process.
