State Police Exploring Use Of Drone Aircraft; Unmanned Craft Won't Be Used For Surveillance, According To Internal Memo

It looks like the Illinois State Police may be adding drone aircraft to their toolbox. 


An internal State Police memo obtained by 970 WMAY says a $25,000 unmanned aerial vehicle will be used to provide photography of crime and traffic accident scenes.  The memo indicates the drone craft, equipped with a high-definition camera, would not be used for surveillance of suspects… something that would require a warrant. 


ISP officials so far have provided very little information on-the-record about its plans for the drone and how many of the devices it intends to purchase and deploy.
