Drones may soon be flying over Austin crime scenes.Officers spent the day in College Station learning how to use the technology.At first glance, it looks like a child’s toy.
It’s actually an $80,000 military drone. There are 250 of these models being used in Afghanistan.
Manufacturers of the unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs are now marketing them to law enforcement.
Members of the APD Technology Unit traveled to Texas A&M to learn how to use them.
Officers expect the FAA to limit the flights to a height of 200 feet with the restriction of always keeping the aircraft within view.
With a battery life of about 30 minutes, officers say flying it around the city would be impossible.
