State Police Drone For Accident and Crime Scene Photography


Illinois State Police have purchased a drone aircraft which the agency apparently intends to use for aerial photography of crime and accident scenes.

 

ISP officials are not saying much publicly about the $25,000 unmanned aerial vehicle, but an internal memo obtained by 970 WMAY News says there are no plans to use the drone for surveillance of criminal suspects… something that would in most cases require a warrant.

 

It’s unclear whether the drone has been used yet or how often it may be deployed… or whether there are plans to purchase more of the aircraft.
