    The local police will use drones to control capacities on beaches and to break up gatherings

    Four Local Police officers are taking a course on how to pilot drones, as part of the project for the provision of this type of element for the control of capacity on the beaches of the municipality. This is a pilot project which, depending on its effectiveness, will gradually be extended to other local departments.

    The councillor and municipal delegate for Public Safety, Bernardo Piña, has indicated that initially there was a drone used over the last few months for other municipal purposes, which will be coordinated at the moment by a police officer until the four aforementioned police officers complete the course.

    Its entry into action, with operations that will be of a random nature, will not only make it possible to monitor social distancing and capacity on the coast, but also to control beaching areas, the presence of boats in bathing areas, rescue alerts and agglomerations of users in public spaces that are usually very crowded.

    The pandemic has made it possible to visualise this new technology for police forces, requiring specific training for agents by taking courses for pilots and drone operators in security and emergencies.
    The use of this type of element makes it possible to cover more areas with less time and fewer agents, also providing a new perspective that was lacking until now.

    It should be noted that drones can also incorporate infrared cameras to record images at night and loudspeakers to alert the population in certain situations.
