According to Freedom of Information Acts request, Johns Creek Police bought a Drone, equipped with integrated 4K camera for aerial video & still photos.
This advanced equipment has sonic and optical sensors and can also be flown indoors. It has a range of over a mile.
With this wave of technology comes a bevy of concerns such as future weaponizing, possible software hacking, and imposter drones pretending to be the police.
The short battery life could limit the potential benefits of the drone such as looking for a missing person, or criminal on the run.
