New Report: Building and Managing a Successful Public Safety UAS Program

The National Police Foundation, in collaboration with the National Institute of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice, has just released a new report for public safety practitioners interested in using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for public safety operations.

The report, entitled Building and Managing a Successful Public Safety UAS Program: Practical Guidance and Lessons Learned from the Early Adopters, examines seven public safety agencies that were among the very first agencies in the country to deploy UAS. Drawing upon the experience from these early adopting agencies, the report provides practitioners, with or without aviation experience, with practical guidance on the development of a UAS program, including considerations such as community engagement, regulatory compliance, UAS policies and procedures, training, system selection, and data collection. The report also provides a variety of resources that may prove helpful in the management of a UAS program.
