Police float statewide drone use

Standard

Lansing — The Michigan State Police could become the first police agency in the nation with statewide authorization to deploy an aerial drone to photograph vehicle crash scenes and give a bird’s-eye view of other emergency situations.

The agency hopes to get permission next month from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly a $158,000 remote-controlled tiny helicopter that state police pilots have been training to use for more than a year.
