DJI Matrice 30 drone: A New Tool in Philly’s Fight Against Crime?

Philadelphia Ponders Drone Assistance in Law Enforcement

The Philadelphia City Council is actively delving into the potential advantages of leveraging in the realm of crimefighting. At a recent demonstration held inside the council chambers, the committee on public safety was presented with a detailed overview of the drone's capabilities.

According to supporters of the innovative approach, drones like the DJI Matrice 30 offer a unique aerial perspective, granting law enforcement access to areas typically out of reach.

Drones give law enforcement the ability to see things that officers can't see on the ground, emphasized a staunch advocate. Such drones can adeptly navigate narrow alleyways in search of suspects, provide an early visual of ongoing criminal activities. And in tense situations facilitate communication by delivering a phone to a suspect.

It's noteworthy that the utilization of aerial technology isn't novel, with approximately 1,400 departments nationwide already adopting it. However, as technology advances and offers multifaceted solutions, cities like Philadelphia are keen on exploring every available avenue to ensure public safety.
