The Seaside Police Department in Seaside, New Jersey, applied for a drone donation to the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program on 7/12/22. And now, the department will receive a new Autel drone, accessories, and Part 107 training to start its drone program and help save people's lives.
“It is a privilege to support underfunded public safety agencies across the country with life-saving Drone Technology! It is partners like those listed that help make our mission possible!” Mark Langley CEO of the NPS-DDP said.
In collaboration with the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program (NPS-DDP.org), Autel Robotics, Foxfury Lighting Solutions, SkyeBrowse, and Pilot Institute have donated a drone, lighting kit, FAA pilot class, and 3D modeling reality software to the Seaside Police Department.
The new Autel drone will be donated to the Seaside Police Department on September 26, 2022. 10:00 AM at 1 Municipal Plaza, Seaside Park, NJ. 08752
The Seaside Police Department explains why a drone would be helpful to them.
“Every year we receive a number of calls for missing children in town. A drone would give us a greater chance of finding the child in a shorter time. As we all know, time is critical in these situations. We have also received a number of calls for swimmers or boaters in distress. Our beaches are not manned 24/7 with lifeguards and our fire department is volunteer. We are not equipped with a boat or jet ski. Earlier this week we were dispatched to a boater in distress in the Bay with three children on board taking on water. A drone would provide us with the ability to pinpoint the exact location of individuals as well as drop flotation devices.”
“We are pleased to see companies of all types making donations in support of the NPSDDP mission to help put ” Eyes In The Sky For Every Department In Need”TM. The generosity of these types of donations cannot be underestimated as this hardware provides life-saving value in the hands of those who work so hard to protect the communities they serve. Also, it provides a tremendous amount of economic benefit in saved man-hours. We encourage private citizens and any company including public safety to contact us to recycle any unused UAV back into service. If any of the drones that we receive are not suitable for public safety we have partnered with Women and Drones to donate these types of drones to STEM programs across the country to help benefit youth Education.” Said Mark Langley CEO of NPS-DDP
“Pilot Institute is proud to support NPS-DDP in their efforts to bring additional resources to Public Safety agencies and help them do their job more efficiently and safely. We currently support hundreds of public safety agencies across the country and look forward to continuing to do so with NPS-DDP's help.” Said Greg Reverdiau, CEO of Pilot Institute.
“We're proud to support first-responders nationwide by providing equipment for lifesaving operations. We're also proud to work with NPS-DDP as a partner in pursuing that shared goal. We think the praise and TRUST shown for our drones by police and fire departments around the country is the greatest endorsement we can receive, and we hope to support communities and those who serve them for many years to come.” Said, John Simmons of Autel Robotics
“We believe in the mission of NPS-DDP to help put life-saving drone technology in the hands of public safety. We will donate a six-month license to the Seaside Police Department. The SkyeBrowse Software solution allows public safety to acquire mission-critical data for command staff with no advanced training required to make a highly accurate 3D model with just 1 tap in the SkyeBrowse app. Departments cleared crime scenes in 90 seconds, instead of 3 hours. Pre-planning is made easy, a 3-minute SkyeBrowse flight has been used to place snipers at events and spot hazmat runoffs. Scenes like this are cleared 90% faster with SkyeBrowse.” Said Bobby Ouyang CEO of SkyeBrowse.
