Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…a flying robot police officer! [Local 10]
Miami Dade county will be the first civilian police force to integrate unmanned “Micro Air Vehicle” (that’s “flying robot” in layman’s terms) into their policing. Watch out, bad boys. The military has been using these drones for years, but this is the first time they’ll be used for civilian policing.
The MAV is remote controlled, unarmed and unmanned and can soar over 10,000 feet. Watch a video here: [Honeywell] The drones will be used when police need an eye in the sky, “especially when officers need video of a heavily armed suspect.” The Miami-Dade police force has secured grant money to pay for the robots and the complex control system, which can cost millions of dollars.
We can’t think of one single better way of spending that money than robots in the sky.
