Drones Assist With Police Standoff, Crime Scene Mapping

Public safety agencies continue to find some new and unique ways to utilize unmanned aerial systems, aka drones, in both crime scene investigations and on-scene incident monitoring. Two companies in the space provided details of how drones were utilized to defuse a standoff and assist crime scene investigation.

In Campbell, Calif., police used a US-1 drone from startup Impossible Aerospace during a standoff at a Denny’s restaurant on Feb. 8, 2019. Equipped with thermal and optical sensors and its 90-minute battery life, the US-1 provided police with a persistent and accurate aerial view of the perimeter, roof, and exits of the building, which helped lead to a peaceful arrest of a suspect, Impossible Aerospace said.
