Bonnie, Please Shut Your Blinds

My girl friend Bonnie lives on the 30th floor of a high rise with beautiful views of NYC. Being that high up brings her lots of freedom because she doesn’t have neighbors peeking in.

That was the case yesterday. Today, Bonnie may have a police drone checking her out. It was just announced that the NYPD will be using drones for hostage situations, remote crime scenes, incidents involving hazardous materials, monitoring crowds at large events and collision documentation.

The drones include 11 DJI Mavic Pro quadcopters for tactical operations, a pair of DJI Matrice 210 RTK quadcopters for 3D mapping in search and rescue work, and a DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter for training.

NYC is not the first to use drones for safety purposes. While the use of drones in many cases are restricted, the NYPD is allowed to use them in emergency situations. A lawyer for the Civil Liberties Union said not enough is being done to prevent misuse.

This should get interesting.
