The Cañon City Police Department (CCPD) in Colorado has received its first DJI Spark drone to start its drone program thanks to a gift from unmanned aircraft system (UAS) technology company Airborne Works.
The drone will assist in expanding the department’s response platform in several ways, according to CCPD, including quick field deployments, Search and Rescue, tactical deployments, Wildfire monitoring, and crime/crash scene documentation.
