The Mumbai Traffic Police has sent a proposal to the State Home Department to procure 45 superior drones for traffic monitoring, reports freepressjournal.in.
The drones proposed have a clear zoom in function, spotlights and public address systems. Apart from monitoring traffic, the police aim to deploy these unmanned craft to book traffic offenders and monitor more secluded areas.
Yashasvi Yadav, Joint Commissioner of Police Traffic, said, “We are beginning drone policing with hi-end camera and public address systems. We intend to purchase them rather than take the rental route.”
