Reduced Response Time

Aerial drones don't have travel impediments like ground units, which means greater coverage in less time. Coupled with their quick deploy ability, drones help enable lightning fast response times.

Increased Responder Safety

Understanding the full scope of visible dangers present at a scene, helps arm responding officers with valuable information for quick de-escalation.

Quicker De-escalation

The aerial perspective drones provide help inform a measured response and help bring parties involved to a swift resolution.

Extended Operational Reach

Strategically coordinated and pre-planned launch sites help provide quick response and agile interceptions.

Manage Response Cost

With clear scene visibility, command is able to easily identify and negotiate ongoing needs while delegating responsibilities efficiently.
