Police chiefs adopt drone code of conduct
Washington Times ^ | 8-16-12 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 08/16/2012 8:02:24 PM PDT by dynachrome

Here are the eight operational rules the chiefs recommended:

1. UAV operations require a Certificate of Authorization (CAO) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). A law enforcement agency contemplating the use of UAV should contact the FAA early in the planning process to determine the requirements for obtaining a COA.

2. UAVs will only be operated by personnel, both pilots and crew members, who have been trained and certified in the operation of the system. All agency personnel with UAV responsibilities, including command officers, will be provided training in the policies and procedures governing their use.

3. All flights will be approved by a supervisor and must be for a legitimate public safety mission, training, or demonstration purposes.

etc. bs,etc.

Police chiefs all work for mayors. Big city mayors typically have few scruples.

Time to fight back. These drones will be used to spy as they please. Time to reciprocate. Publish tehir personal infomration for all to see, take pictures of their wives and children and post them for all to see, follow them around and video their private affairs, fly planes over their homes and do the same, etc, etc, etc.

Rule #1: Only fly over the White neighborhoods.

Better yet....

Publish the REAL names of all undercover officers and CI’s.

I detest JBT’s. Anything that takes ‘em down a lot of pegs is OK by me.

Will the drones be equipped with dog seeking bullets for “emergencies?”

Only if they PROMISE they will be good boys and girls.

Because we all know no one in law enforcement EVER LIES.

Big Brother Drones watching our every move.

Another reason to go with a big caliber rifle.

Will these drones have the capability of spraying Agent Orange or similar stuff?

No problemo.

These kinds of controls have proven themselves on SWAT team break-ins.

Right?

Rowdy Roddy dropped one with a police shotgun. How tough can it be?

“Code of Conduct”? Hardly. It’s a SOP for flight operations. So much for 4th amendment protections. The abuses of the Open Fields Doctrine will be limitless with these Bozos. They will fly over your property, peer into your windows, and listen to your backyard patio conversations, all without warrants. A airborne fishing expedition conducted 24/7.

For sure - not nearly as solid as Asimov's Laws of Robotics...

3. All flights will be approved by a supervisor and must be for a legitimate public safety mission...

That alone, being open to the LEO's interpretation, will let them do whatever they want with their UAVs.

You can see the mission creep on this one coming from about as far away as you can see a drone..
