Chinese Company Donates Drones to U.S. Police Departments

The Chinese Company, Shenzhen-based DJI Enterprise, has donated drones to U.S. Police departments. The drones are to be used in the surveillance of people violating social distancing restrictions.

WOOD TV reported:

On the manufacturer’s website, DJI uses examples of police agencies, like Daytona Beach, Florida police, who plan on using the drone’s loud speaker to disperse crowds to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

“As far as patrolling the streets and shouting messages … that’s not what these are for,” Kent County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Joel Roon told the news station.


The drones are smaller than the current fleet and are equipped with a light and a speaker.

The decision to accept the drones was based more on opportunity than a specific mission.
