The Chula Vista Police Department is being transparent with its residents by providing more details behind each police drone flight.
“Transparency and accountability are key components in the success of our drone program which has been an invaluable tool in maintaining the safety of our officers and the public. We pride ourselves on ensuring the public has access to our drone flight information in upholding the trust of our community," said CVPD Chief Roxana Kennedy in a statement.
CVPD selected AirData UAV to help provide information about drone flights and will provide residents the ability to view the exact location, flight path, and purpose behind each flight.
Since 2018, the Chula Vista Police Department has started using drones to help with investigations and provide better situational awareness for officers responding to calls.
Within the first few months of operation, the department credited its drone program with assisting in nearly 60 arrests.
