FWPD Upgrading drone tech – WOWO 1190 AM

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne police are using some new tech to take on unauthorized drones around the Summit City.

Officer Michael Hickman tells our Partners in News at ABC 21 they’ve made upgrades to their own drones to allow them to track down not just the drones that either shouldn’t be in the sky at all or are flying where they shouldn’t be, but their pilots too.

“The number of people using drones for some kind of malicious act will greatly decrease because we’ll be out there and be able to see who’s flying.”

The FWPD says they’re aware of privacy concerns, and they typically only use their drones in an emergency.
