Regardless of the changes in our society, the emergency services continue to play a major role in maintaining order. One 16-year-old girl could certainly attest to that, as she called 911 to report that she’d been attacked in October 2018. With that in mind, though, the police then sent out a drone to locate her.
Due to the hazards of their job, police forces across Britain have looked at new ways to help the public. Indeed, certain cities have attempted to capitalize on some advanced technology to reach that goal in the past few years.
One example of that is the growing usage of drone technology. Back in 2006, the police force from Merseyside, England, planned to monitor what they described as “problem estates” with a group of drones. According to one of the senior officers, an operation like that wouldn’t cost as much as using a helicopter.
