Illinois Lawmaker Introduces Drone Restriction Regulations

An Illinois lawmaker wants some rules spelled out on where and how law enforcement in the state can use unmanned drones.


Democratic State Senator Daniel Biss has introduced a bill that would prohibit police from using the drones unless they first obtain a search warrant.


It would also ban putting any weaponry on-board the unmanned aircraft, and would require that any information collected by the drone be destroyed unless it is part of an ongoing criminal investigation.


The Chicago Tribune reports at least two Illinois counties are considering the use of drones to assist with investigations.
