As of mid-2018, there are over 900 public safety agencies using drones. This was unheard of just three years ago. Drones have opened up the 3rd dimension to public safety agencies like never before. Now, drones are being used to save lives and protect law enforcement officers from danger. Drones have been incorporated in a wide variety of public safety fields such as fire suppression, exigent circumstances, public affairs events and quickly locating missing persons.
