From sUAS News:
So it now seems that unmanned aircraft, or drones, are starting to gain acceptance from both public safety agencies and the constituents they serve. Are you ready? However, the more important question may be, “are you capable?” This paper will explore the requirements, obstacles and misconceptions of introducing drones into the lineup of an agency’s tools to better serve their public.
A primary concern for any agency is the amount of resistance received from the people living in their jurisdiction. This statement of fact is made based on the experience and resistance encountered in introducing drone programs in those municipalities that have had the vision and persistence to pursue it.
You WILL meet some resistance, no matter what.
