Question

Could you please disclose a list of all the incidents police have investigated using 'drones' in the past two years. 

Could you please disclose: 

  • The nature of the incident including a description of what was recorded on the incident log
  • The location (city, town etc)
  • The date
  • The outcome (arrest, NFA, charges etc)

Answer

A search of our systems has been conducted using a free text search of incidents which include the word ‘drone’ in the Modus Operandi (MO). This has identified three incidents. Please see the details below. You will see that two are under investigation and as such, minimal details have been provided so as not to compromise an investigation.
