Public Safety Departments across the State of Minnesota have begun to utilize the advancements in unmanned aerial vehicle/system (UAV/UAS or “drone”) technology. UAVs serve to assist in search and rescue, fire scene assessment and investigation, large area crime scene investigations and other benefits to overall public safety. The New Brighton Department of Public Safety has begun to explore the addition of UAVs in an effort to provide the best public safety services possible to our community.
The City of New Brighton Public Safety Commission is asking for the public’s comments about the proposed implementation of a UAV program and draft policy governing drone usage. Please note that all comments will be kept anonymous.
