LAPD Moves Closer To Testing Aerial Drones For 'Tactical Events'


The LAPD obtained two UAVs – otherwise known as drones – from the Seattle Police Department last week at no cost to the city, according to officials.

The Seattle Police Department originally purchased the Draganflyer X6 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles using federal grants. The drones are currently being kept at an undisclosed federal law enforcement facility "pending review by the LAPD and the Board of Police Commissioners" and the public, according to the LAPD.

Each remote-controlled copter is about three feet in width, has three rotors and is equipped to carry a video camera.
