    Police drones

    There are many new possibilities for the police, to use drones. Some examples: 1. Mini-drones Police-officers could wear foldable mini-drones on their body, weighing about 200 grams. A mini-drone can be controlled via a smart-phone, that can also display it's video-images. The smartphone can send those images to the dispatcher, and to police-collegues on the scene. These mini-drones can be deployed to locate a suspect in a park or on a roof, or to search a building where an armed suspect may hide, or to quickly find a drowning-victim, etc. 2. Fixed-wing VTOL drones Fixed-wing VTOL drones combine high-speed and long endurance, with hovering in place, and 'Vertical Take Of and Landing' (VTOL). They have the shape of a mini-plane, and can weigh less than 4 kgs. They can reach an incident-scene very fast, to record evidence and start pursuit, while police-cars rush to join the pursuit. 3. Tethered drones Tethered drones are tethered with a vertical kevlar or nylon line, to a police-car, police-boat, pole or building. Tethered drones are powered via a thin copper wire, that runs along that kevlar cord. That allows them to be larger than battery-operated drones, and carry heavier equipment, like a video-camera with a radio-controlled telelens. 4. Tethered blimps Tethered blimps (AKA tethered balloons) are filled with helium. They don't need a motor to stay in the air, so they are cheaply operated. They also are tethered to a vertical synthetic line. Tethered drones and tethered balloons could be located at the exit-roads of cities, at a height of 10 to 150 meters, to help detect fleeing suspects. Or above a city-centre, mass-event, disaster-scene, large fire, riot-scene, et cetera.
  2. Excellent! Well done to that traffic unit and the MET police in general. I was surprised to see them making tactical contact. I was under the impression the MET didn't allow bike pursuits at all, unless they were armed etc, let alone tactical contact. Has the MET changed their policy? Public opinion is that they're too risk averse with bike pursuits.
  3. Investigations are underway following an incident last night (November 9) in which a police car was stolen. Officers were called to a domestic related incident in Sorbas Road, Turnford at 9.58pm. Upon arrival officers detained a man, who subsequently stole a police car. This resulted in a pursuit in Broxbourne, East Herts and Essex. Pursuit after a police car was stolen http://www.herts.police.uk/hertfordshire_constabulary/latest_news/news_articles/101116_-_1125_a.aspx?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=SocialSignIn&utm_source=Twitter Oh dear this could cost the officer dearly in cakes On a serious note I hope it's not blown out of proportion.
  4. A Merseyside Police officer was struck and killed by a stolen car during a pursuit. The officer was hit after a red Mitsubishi pick-up vehicle mounted a central reservation along Wallasey Dock North Road, Wallasey, at 02:10 BST. Police said the Mitsubishi was stolen from an estate agents in Birkenhead just after 01:00 BST. A murder investigation has been launched. Follow latest updates on this story with BBC Merseyside Live. A statement from Merseyside Police said officers had earlier attended a burglary at an estate agents on Woodchurch Road, Birkenhead. During the raid the offenders stole the Mitsubishi, which was then pursued by officers. The policeman killed was one of two neighbourhood patrol officers who made efforts to stop the car, police said. He was taken to Arrowe Park Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Family informed The officer's family has been informed and a family liaison officer is providing support, police said. Detectives are now examining CCTV footage in a bid to identify the offenders. Wallasey Road North, Corbyn Street and the estate agents in Woodchurch Road, Birkenhead, have been cordoned off as a forensic examination takes place. Diversions have been put in place at Wallasey Road North and Woodchurch Road. Police are yet to make any arrests. The Mitsubishi was later found abandoned in Corbyn Street, Wallasey. Officers are urging witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-34441624 A very sad start to the day.
  5. I've not seen anything quite like this. And I don't think I'll ever hear a radio update "magazine empty, car full of holes" in my entire policing career.
  6. A member of the public contacted police at around 3.35pm to report they had sighted two men on a scrambler bike in the Edge Lane area and one was carrying what was thought to be a firearm. These are pictures by our photographer Ian Cooper at the scene. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/two-arrested-gun-found-after-10285036 Nice result by the looks of it, sure our force isn't alone in finding those committing firearms offences are increasing using scrambler bikes to evade capture.
  7. Following on from another thread, the topic of initial phase Pursuit, compliant stops and full on roadwars driving came up, with out going off topic in the previous thread I thought Id start a new one so we can discuss the nuances in what the different levels mean in different forces.
