Instructions are provided for how to access a report from the Justice Technology Information Center (JTIC) that outlines some basic insights and lessons learned from a focus group on implementing a UAS program in a law enforcement agency, as well as choosing and operating UAS technology.
In late 2017, a National Institute of Justice law enforcement focus group on UAS met to discuss and exchange information on focus group member agencies' use or desired use of UAS. Focus group discussions addressed lessons learned by agencies with established UAS programs, along with trends and issues associated with UAS technology.
