Corinth PD adds drone to force resources

The Corinth Police Department recently added a drone to its public safety resources.

The drone will be used to help officers locate missing persons and subjects who flee on foot, diagramming crime/accident scenes, supporting tactical responses and other community functions, the department said in a social media post this week. It’s equipped with 4K and infrared cameras and will be operated by officers who will be trained according to FAA requirements, and there will be a policy to dictate its use based on law enforcement best practices.

The department will launch an inaugural flight sometime soon to show community members the new tool’s capabilities.
