Los Angeles FD Approved for Drones

June 22, 2017

City of Los Angeles officials approved a Fire Department (LAFD) plan to use drones, making it one of the first major metropolitan fire departments with a significant drone program, reports My News LA.

The plan was approved despite concerns from the American Civil Liberties Union and community organizations concerned with privacy. However, an LAFD report on the program stated it would not use the devices to monitor or provide surveillance for law enforcement.

The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation has offered to fund the program’s operating costs.
