The New York City Council passed a bill that when signed by Mayor Bill de Blasio would force the NYPD to disclose their use of drones and other spy technologies in New York City.
Here’s an interesting story. A mysterious drone tells New Yorkers to keep a social distance, but it is not an official NYPD drone. No, this is a drone from the ‘Anti-COVID-19 volunteer drone task force’, which seems to be a non-existent organization. The drone, a DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise, tells people in a somewhat crowded Manhattan park to socially distance themselves. Eventhough the message may be appropriate, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has now started an investigation to find out more about this drone flight in New York City.
