GRAND RAPIDS, MI — They’re versatile, small, helicopter-like and offer an unparalleled eye-in-the-sky for skilled users.

Drones are becoming ever more popular among hobbyists and for business purposes, and most experts say their use by police and fire agencies is only a matter of time.

So is the Grand Rapids Police Department in the market for one?

Not just yet, says Capt. David Kiddle.

“We’re focused on body cameras right now,” he said.

Drones were a popular item at an exhibitor’s space at the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police conference at the Amway Grand Plaza this week.
