Colorado Police Want to Send Drones Instead of Officers for Certain 911 Calls | The Gateway expert

More than a dozen law enforcement departments in Colorado plan to send drones instead of officers to respond to specific 911 calls.

The Denver Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies in Colorado plan to send drones instead of officers in situations where drones can provide information about the incident before officers are called to the scene.

The Denver Post reported that in some cases the drone would be the only response to some incidents if an operator can determine from the air that officers do not need to respond.

Sergeant Jeremiah Gates, who is in charge of the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, stated, “This really is the future of law enforcement at some point, whether we like it or not.”

Per The New York Post:

Several local law enforcement agencies in Colorado, including the Denver Police Department (DPD), plan to send drones instead of officers to respond to 911 calls.

“This really is the future of law enforcement at some point, whether we like it or not,” said Sgt. Jeremiah Gates, who heads the drone unit at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, told The Denver Post.

At least two dozen agencies in Colorado's Front Range already use drone technology for certain tasks, such as searching for missing people, tracking fleeing suspects, mapping crime scenes or overhead surveillance during SWAT operations.

Now the sheriff's office is considering using them to respond to some 911 calls in situations where the drones could provide useful information from the location of an incident before officers are deployed.

Police forces aren't the only ones using drones; criminals also use it.

The Gateway Pundit reported in March that Georgian law enforcement authorities arrested 150 people for running a drone-based operation that smuggled weapons, drugs and cellphones into Georgia's prisons.
