they can be used to provide aerial images of special events and other areas where large crowds gather.

What the drones wonít be used for, according to Theobald, is to survey everyday crowds on the beach or Boardwalk or any purposes that would hint at spying on residents and visitors
Seems they are contradicting themselves in the announcement itself

i'd be interested to see a poll of those who travel there and live there to see if they would want to:
1. have the drones take up tax dollars
2. have .gov drones flying the skies doing surveillance on the people


me personally, I'd vote no. I don't want that.

I"m ok with it. I don't think it would be a huge $ burden. Not compared to the rest of the budget. Until they try it for a few years, won't know if its worth it.

Now HoCo PD is getting a drone.
I guess someone had a big sale.

Kite Loft often has many of them up during the summer when the winds are coming from the shore

I won't be surprised if they don't end up using them on Assateague Island sometime in the near future to run up and down the shore using pre programmed runs so that the operator does not reallly need to do anything other than watch the camera and evade if something pops up.
