Re: FAA seeks police help...

Empty post -- no content, just a link. Please don't do that here. Always have something to say about it, even if it's just a quote of the linked article, to provide some context. Such as:

The FAA is deputizing police forces across the U.S. in the fight against illegal drone use. The agency has issued a 12-page guide to law-enforcement agencies enlisting their help in stemming the "considerable increase in the unauthorized use" of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS). Of course, the police don't really have the authority to enforce airspace regulations so the agency is asking that law enforcement do the legwork when illegal drone use is suspected. "State and local police are often in the best position to immediately investigate unauthorized UAS operations, and as appropriate, to stop them," the agency said in a news release posted Jan. 8.

It's a little worrying that this is happening. I understand the need for safety but this encourages local cops to interrupt anyone flying , even if no obvious law is being broken.
