The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) is reportedly set to augment its investigatory capabilities by incorporating 30 cutting-edge police drones into its arsenal. The aerial devices are expected to expedite responses to precarious situations, furnishing law enforcement personnel with real-time intelligence via live video feeds prior to arriving on site.

Additionally, these unmanned aircraft systems will be employed for interior operations, such as building sweeps, thereby mitigating potential hazards to officers and civilians alike.

“Integrating drones into our repertoire not only bolsters safety measures but also fortifies our commitment to the community,” said BCSO’s top-ranking official, Sheriff John Allen. “Our foremost objective is to safeguard and champion the denizens of Bernalillo County in New Mexico, and this aerial initiative will prove instrumental in achieving that aim.”
