Skydio drones for the police
Skydio’s autonomous drones are ideal for public safety applications, allowing officers to focus on the mission, while drones provide valuable situational awareness – an additional level of understanding of active scenes that provides critical safety for officers and the community . Skydio’s US-made products are a trusted platform that any government agency can use with confidence.
“Drones have become valuable tools for showing police officers active scenes in the air, such as responding to emergencies, conducting search and rescue missions, and gathering evidence from privileged angles,” says Skydio. “However, traditional manual drones require extensive training and place a high cognitive burden on officers who should concentrate on the mission. By leveraging this next generation of aerial intelligence, public safety agencies can improve the operation of teams, increase the safety of their personnel and move drones from valuable to indispensable force multipliers. “
