Drones are undeniably a valuable tool for public safety agencies. The city of Chula Vista has been a leader in using drones as first responders, led by UAS Commander and Patrol Captain (Ret.) Fritz Reber. Now, Reber has joined Skydio as their Head of Public Safety: and is ready to share his experience with drones for police.
Skydio Drones for Police
Skydio‘s autonomous drones are ideal for public safety applications, allowing officers to focus on the mission while drones provide valuable situational awareness – an extra layer of understanding of active scenes that provides critical safety for officers and the community. Skydio’s made in the US products are a trusted platform that can be used with confidence by any public agency.
“Drones have become valuable tools for giving police officers airborne eyes on active scenes, such as responding to emergencies, conducting search and rescue missions, and for collecting evidence from privileged vantage points,” says Skydio. “However, traditional manual drones require heavy training and impose a high cognitive load on officers that should be focused on the mission… By leveraging this next generation of aerial intelligence, public safety agencies can improve the teams’ operations, increase safety for their personnel and move drones from valuable to indispensable force multipliers.”
In this webinar, Fritz Reber will speak with Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Mauricio Barra, about the Chula Vista Police Department’s internationally recognized Drone-as-First-Responder (DFR) program in partnership with the FAA’s San Diego Drone Integration Pilot Program (IPP). Don’t miss this opportunity to hear first hand about the best uses of drones for police and how Skydio’s autonomous drones are contributing to the sector.
