Drone Technology Not An Alternative For Police Department Sky Patrols
Published: Friday, July 17, 2015 - 5:24pm
Recently the City of Mesa Police Department purchased a new helicopter for more than $3 million to replace an aging helicopter that was damaged after crash landing in Gilbert last year.
The citizens of Mesa approved the purchase in a bond election after the Police Department argued that maintaining a Sky Patrol unit is a costly but necessary tool for their work.
But is there a less costly alternative as drone technology permeates our lives and the skies?
