In the UK police have a unit with drones

Flying drones can be a good tool for police and other services. From the air you can easily track down the perpetrator, to take pictures of the crime scene or to capture on video some of the area. That is why the UK police decided to expand their capabilities with the help of a special unit, which includes experienced operators.

Several commands in the service of the officers have received special training and after 18 months of training started to work. Now at the disposal of police there is generic drones the DJI Inspire, equipped with thermal imaging and high-resolution cameras, — this equipment allows the use of quadrocopter for different tasks, so with their help filming crime scenes, traffic accidents, and monitor protected areas, helping to deal with environmental offences. Now the residents of Devon, Dorset and Cornual think carefully about before you go to a suburban forest belt to fry on the fire meat — the drones are excellent job of aerial photography, so offenders has become much easier to identify.

Drones will be able to help in other, much more complex operations, but they have disadvantages. For example, they will not be able to perform the tasks assigned to them in strong winds, rain or snowfall.
