MIAMI, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — While we don’t normally cover news out of Miami-Dade County, you can’t ignore the incredibly cool crime fighting space ship that the Miami Police Department just unveiled.
This is a remote controlled “micro air vehicle” that police say will only be used for “hot” situations — events where there’s something going on and a bird’s eye view is needed. (Think hostage situation, active crime scene, exploding ammunition factory). While Miami — and Miami-Dade County, for that matter, have no lack of helicopters for police and emergency use, this is notable because the pilot is on the ground, controlling the drone remotely. If anything should happen to the flying machine, nothing happens to the officer.
Cameras are built into the “micro air vehicle,” weapons are not, although you like do not want this thing landing on your head as you attempt to flee a crime scene.
