Southern Pines Today April Edition Page 11 Page 12 April Edition Carthage Gazette Sheriff Neil Godfrey Moore County Sheriff’s Offi ce has purchased an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) equipped with an eye-in-thesky camera for surveillance in a variety of law enforcement operations. According to Sheriff Godfrey, “The technological advancement is in concert with the Sheriff’s Offi ce mission by improving the ability to effi ciently and effectively enforce the law, protect lives and save valuable resources in time, personnel and money. “We are not going to be doing random surveillance of people,” Sheriff Godfrey said. “It will be a mission-specifi c tool to be brought for specific incidents.” Those uses include: search and rescue operations, crime scene photography, documenting natural or man-made disasters, active shooter incidents, searching for a suspect, Special Response Team call-outs, high-risk search warrants, hostage negotiations, drug interdiction, crowd monitoring and explosive-device inspection. The Sheriff’s “One of the main uses for the UAV will be for high-risk situations such as someone barricaded in a home. The UAV will allow us to get a bird’s-eye view and see more of what’s going on without having to put any offi cers in danger. The capability will also increase public safety for search and rescue operations. We will no longer have to lose valuable time waiting on helicopters to located missing personnel.” Sheriff Godfrey said. Two deputies are currently being trained to fl y and operate the UAV. Moore County Sheriff’s Offi ce recently received a DJI Matrice 210 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The DJI Matrice 210 is the “fi rst-ever” dual-camera UAV for simultaneous thermal and standard color imagery. It has an upward-facing gimbal mount, weather resistant design, dual battery bays, thermal imaging and an extensive zoom. The new Moore County Sheriff’s Offi ce UAV with its capabilities makes it ideal for law enforcement search and rescue in locations that are diffi cult to approach. Corner The Matrice 210 can fl y for up to 35 minutes and features an operation range of 4.4 miles. It has two controllers, one for the pilot and one for the observer to control the cameras. Local Missing Child Success Story On Thursday March 1, at approximately 10:30 pm, Moore County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence off of Flowers Road in Jackson Springs, North Carolina reference a missing 11 year old female. Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the home and began their search. Moore County Sheriff’s Offi ce Drone Pilot, Lieutenant Tim Davis, arrived at the residence with the Matrice 210 Drone and immediately launched it to search for the child. Within fi fteen minutes, a heat signature was observed in the wooded area approximately 100 yards from the residence across the highway. Lieutenant Davis was able to use his radio to direct Deputies Sergeant Cameron and Deputies Oaks and Griffi n to that location. Deputies were able to locate the small sleeping child tucked away under some thick tree limbs and brush. “This is a perfect example of why we invested in this drone capability” said Sheriff Neil Godfrey. “The Moore County Sheriff’s Offi ce is doing everything we can to ensure that we are using technology to benefi t the safety of our citizens as well as our deputies. Without the drone, we would have had to employ additional resources that historically would have included a helicopter. As a parent, I am happy for the child and the family that last night’s fl ight was a success and as the Sheriff, I am proud of Lieutenant Davis and our deputies.” Technology and law enforcement have always been uneasy friends. As a society, we generally want our cops to have all of the tools they need to keep the bad guys at bay. We just want them to use those tools responsibly and without sticking their beaks into ordinary, generally law-abiding citizens’ everyday life. Whether it’s using infrared heat sensors to detect marijuana grow houses, global positioning system(GPS) tracking devices to tail suspects or breathalysers to calculate how much a driver has had to drink, advances in technology usually mean new ways to make cops more effective. There are currently 347 U.S. agencies using drones as part of their of their approach in law enforcement. Some of these account for a staggering 518 percent increase in drone use in the past 24 months. The fact is, sending in a drone to investigate a scenario is far safer for law enforcement, and can provide far more informative data, faster, than sending in a squad of police offi cers. We are a customer-service-oriented organization and this UAV is another tool to help us to better accomplish our mission.” By: Rick Levinger
