Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Background Information:

The Saint Paul Police Department is seeking public comment as we research and design our policy involving the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Allowing the use of UAS technology in appropriate and authorized circumstances will better assist in the coordination and location of community members in need of assistance when time is of the essence. Your feedback is important and valuable!


We are looking for your feedback. 

An informational brochure and proposed policy are attached for your review. Community information meeting dates/times/locations listed below.
