New York City Police Department unveils new drone system

The nation’s largest police force has unveiled a fleet of drones that will be used in hostage situations and search and rescue operations, but a civil rights group worries the drones might be used to invade privacy.

The New York City Police Department said Tuesday the drones in its unmanned aircraft system program will be deployed in incidents involving hazardous spills and used to document crime scenes and collisions. They will also monitor pedestrians and traffic at large events.
