JPD launches new drone program

The Jonesboro Police Department announced the “launch” of its new Drone Program Thursday.

The JPD Drone Program includes five small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) that are equipped to fly indoors or outdoors, utilize FLIR heat sensing thermal imaging, extremely high resolution cameras, ActiveTracking, and more.

The program also includes seven sworn officers who completed months of training to become fully certified Part 107 drone pilots by the Federal Aviation Administration. Through the expected success of this program, we hope to add more aircraft and pilots in the coming years.

A statement said the drones will be used in situations ranging from standoffs to searches.

JPD started this program to better serve our community in a technological world. Drones are an efficient and effective way of providing law enforcement with critical information to respond to calls for service, emergency situations, hostage situations, barricaded suspects, or to conduct criminal investigations. Some examples include providing an overhead view of an area or incident to ground personnel, safely clearing the interior of buildings, providing detailed documentation of crime and accident scenes, and searching for lost or missing persons.

JPD Statement


  1. A little over reaching. How is the JPD going to guarentee not to abuse these drones say like spying on its citizens.

    • They’ve been spying on us for years now. CCTV cameras are every where in this town and inside local establishments. I’m speaking of the ones completely hidden or disguised!Not sure if they’re using Facial Recognition Software yet but it’s very possible. These law enforcement individuals are employed, trained, and Groomed by the Illuminati. Freemason’ and the Jesuit Order Are our government.
      This also includes education, medical, legal and related entities. Drone’s can be dealt with using simple measures and little money. English government is and has been, running ours for over one hundred years now!”All the forces of evil, cannot stop that which God has ordained”!

    • If if they guarantee this, I certainly will not believe it myself! The JPD(public enemy number one) ,has recently employed (Deployed) officers who obviously were members of Black Water!?! “Whenever you see the fig tree blossom”

  2. I’m simply waiting, as I’ve been instructed by God himself to do,
    to do what God himself has trained me to do!

  3. Just get a signal jammer and jam the signal. These are going to be about as useful as those other camera’s NOT AT ALL.
