If you are a criminal on the run you better start looking up as a drone may be following you. Police departments all over the country are ‘droning up’ to track down criminals and deter crime.

Drones have become the newest crime-fighting tool for police departments across the country. Some local police departments have started using them for investigations, and others are eyeing them to help officers protect lives and catch offenders.

Just one week after the sheriff’s department in Cecil County, Md., got its brand new drone up and running, it was asked to investigate a case of stolen construction equipment.

“I’d say that flight was about as perfect as it could get. It was flawless. The flight went off very well. I think we were in the air a max of 10 minutes,” said Cecil County Sheriff Scott Adams. “Got the video and picture we wanted, got back down quickly, were able to get back to the office and review it with our criminal investigators and other state investigators that were here.” – Fox News

So what do you think? Is the increasing use of police drones a good thing or a bad thing?
