Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are ubiquitous and useful but can also be used for nefarious purposes. Law enforcement faces many constraints when mitigating UAS that enter airspace within their jurisdiction. Detection technology is useful but will only help first responders detect and identify UAS. Mitigating UAS that may have bad intentions is much more complicated and requires skillful application of laws.
This presentation will explore the legal constraints faced by law enforcement at all levels (including some federal agencies), best practices to overcome these challenges, and some emerging or already fielded technologies that can be applied to local law enforcement’s growing UAS challenge.
This webinar training will cover the following topics:
- Provide insight into the constraints that law enforcement, up to the Federal level, are under regarding countering unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
- Review some systems that are in place currently at localities for detecting and tracking UAS.
- Provide best practices to mitigate the impact of UAS usage within a specified jurisdiction.
