Queensland police equip motorbikes with DJI drones
The police in Queensland, Australia have shared that they are now equipping officers’ motorbikes with DJI Phantom drones to aid in forensic crash investigations. The news of the high tech inclusion was shared during AUVSI Xponential 2020.
Queensland, I would say, is the hub of drones in Australia, with Google’s Wing performing drone deliveries, the state government working with Boeing to start producing the Loyal Wingman combat drone, and the annual drone conference taking place in the state.
It makes sense for the police force to join the growing trend and use drone technology to benefit its operations.
