Do you have any other thoughts you would like to share on this topic?
There are some obvious significant benefits to both public and officer safety. The main downside seems to be privacy issues. There are already cameras in cars and bodycams. Drone footage should be treated the same way as existing footage (i.e. protected from unauthorized viewing, but hopefully also tamper resistant by the officers doing the filming). The footage should not be used (viewed or computer analyzed) unless there is an incident of some kind. That will protect against the Orwellian nightmare of "eyes in the sky" watching everything we do.
