“Recent innovations have allowed drones to be introduced to sensitive situations many of which are handled by these departments.”
Police and Fire Drone Applications
Drones can assist crime scene investigation in a variety of ways. They are used to collect evidence that may be difficult to reach from eye level. Two drones can survey a crime scene and provide maps and 3D images within minutes.
Fire departments have been seeing large benefits from the use of drones during structure fires and search and rescue missions. In the case of a structure fire, when first arriving on the scene, the drone can be deployed to assess the scene, before the firefighters are put in harms way.
State Police Drone
Here is an example of what Madison Area Drone Services has done to an DJI Inspire 2 drone to make it ready for state patrol use.
CLOSING THE DISTANCE
This is an example of the capabilities of the DJI Matrice 600 Pro + Z30 lens. Aerial platforms are rapidly becoming vital tools for departments looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations. As the first integrated aerial camera with an optical zoom up to 30x, the Zenmuse Z30 offers unparalleled image data capture. Designed to seamlessly integrate with DJI’s Matrice series of airframes, the Zenmuse Z30 works right out of the box and gives access to the intelligent features DJI is known for. In this video to the right, the Z30 was extended to the top of the mountain about 6km away.
Firefighters depend on having accurate information to base their operations on. By using an airframe equipped with the Zenmuse Z30, rescue teams are able to significantly increase speed of operation and the quality of data collected. At its standard focal length, the Z30’s wide angle provides an overview of a scene. When a detailed view is needed, Tap Zoom lets operators instantly zoom in to drill down on an area of interest. The Z30’s powerful 30x optical zoom enable operators to pick out details more quickly, thereby improving both speed of our data collection and the fidelity of that data.

Autel Evo Products
“The thermal camera options for the Enterprise Edition cannot/do not match the thermal camera on the Evo II” – Officer Wilson of CCPD
The Evo II offers longer perch time/flight time(40mins plus)
The Evo II provides internal storage in the event of no available MSD card
The Evo II is less noisy
The Evo II offers significantly greater stability in wind.
The Evo II offers mapping in the application without need for third party support.
The Evo II has no geofencing, and can be deployed from case to cruise in less than 60 seconds.
The Evo II offers multiple, interchangeable cameras.
The camera options and bounds is the real distinguishing features for the EVO 2. It comes in three configurations: The entry-level model shoots 8K video — yes, eight. A second 8K version adds a thermal imaging camera for operations like search and rescue.
DUAL 640 THERMAL GIMBAL CAMERA
This system is perfect for public safety, search and rescue, and certain types of inspection work. During this video, we will cover the best uses for the EVO II Dual.
