The drone will help with a number of things from search and rescue, to traffic problems, and for things on the ground that might not be seen as easily as if there were eyes in the sky.  According to the Berkeley Patch - the drone will only be used when authorized by Police Chief James Riccio and they will follow rules for drones issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Personally I think it's a great idea!

What do you think about the drone?  Will it be a good thing or bad?
