Drone program launched by Nebraska State Patrol

To clear roadways faster while the troopers are still conducting a crash investigation, the State Patrol has opted to launch a new drone program.

Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol, colonel John Bolduc said that they had started a drone program to help with accident investigations so that roadways can be cleared faster, allowing traffic to move through. This will save time and money for travelers and the trucking industry while hopefully also reducing the chance of follow-up accidents.

All the crash investigators who are part of the drone program have been through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 certification process to become commercial drone operators.

The drones enable the investigators to complete crash investigations in less than half the time it would have taken with traditional methods, reports KSCJ.
