Cpl Trey Bishop owns a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ unmanned aircraft. Unmanned aircraft technology provides an alternative to traditional aviation for law enforcement agencies. Unmanned or remotely piloted aircraft are much cheaper to own and operate than traditional fixed-wing planes and helicopters. Although our small helicopters look similar to hobby aircraft, they are equipped with more sophisticated navigation and communication equipment that allows for safer and more reliable operations and are operated under different FAA regulations.

You will also notice a number of photos on this website along with the City of Jacksonville’s website taken from this quad-copter. We have used this quad-copter for crime scene photos, accident photos, surveillance operations, etc… to name a few things.
