The Unmanned Safety Institute, a professional organization dedicated to the safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the U.S. National Airspace System, has partnered with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) to provide training on the safety and security of UAS to the law enforcement community throughout the State of Florida.
The educational workshops are designed to train law enforcement officers on proper techniques for responding to unauthorized or unlawful UAS flight operations.
The workshop, “Responding to UAS Intrusions” will cover a variety of topics related to the UAS and its components, threats posed by UAS to critical infrastructure, types of UAS users, response protocols and best practices, and federal and state legal enforcement authorities.
The first workshop will be held at the FOP Orlando Lodge on Nov. 18, 2016. To request further information or to attend this workshop, call 877-525-SAFE, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“With over 3 million drones projected to be flying in the United States this year, the threat of an incident occurring increases exponentially,” said Aaron Greenwald, president of the Unmanned Safety Institute. “We think it is absolutely vital that all law enforcement officers across the country have a deep understanding of this technology and how to appropriately respond to unauthorized activity in the event an incident occurs.”
