New York City cops to fly a drone over New York City for security purposes this New Year’s Eve

Police will keep a watchful eye for the first time in New York during New Year’s Eve. This will happen with the help of a police drone. The New York City police deployed 7,000 police officers, bomb-sniffing dogs and 200 blocker trucks filled with sand. Since this technology is going to stay very high above the ground level, it will make it difficult for the pedestrians to spot them. The quadcopter drone will be controlled by the police and will provide a massive view of the entire ground level area.

This will help police to easily identify criminals if any suspicious activity is taking place. Though there are no apparent threats, the police have ensured that it will do its duty, which is why this air patrol is taking place. Also, the police said that they will spot any unmanned vehicles in the air which are not authorised.

Drones are kind of new to the New York Police and they had announced it only a month back. Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill commented on the Drones that time. He said in a statement that the police “must always be willing to leverage the benefits of new and always-improving technology.” Some drones can zoom into objects using camera lenses and can map an area in 3D with the help of thermal-imaging.

The introduction of drones isn’t surprising considering that they have been in huge demand by local advocacy groups who wanted to draw attention to the need for the protection of individuals’ rights and privacy. The NYPD has been trying to enhance its technology for quite some time for better execution of its duties. For example, the department gave up 36,000 Windows phones in order to start working on iPhones. Also, they introduced body cameras to the force so that they could provide greater accountability for their actions. They have established this target that they would provide one camera to each and every officer on the force by the end of 2019.

Hopefully with the Drone guidelines coming into effect in India as well, the same system can be picked up city police here in India as well. This will definitely reduce crime.
