St. Louis police chief wants drones

Sunday, 23 June 2013 09:06 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson wants to add drones to his crime-fighting arsenal.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Dotson wrote a letter this spring to the Federal Aviation Administration making the case for unmanned aerial vehicles. He says that it's crucial to look at new technologies to keep officers and the public safe and to apprehend criminals.

The letter was a preliminary step toward seeking approval for unmanned — and unarmed — flight.

The assent of Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce is required, and she also wrote to the FAA to offer "enthusiastic support."

Dotson says he would seek donations and grants to pay for the drones. They cost from $60,000 to $300,000 each. While pricey, they're still cheaper and safer than helicopters.

Privacy advocates have raised concerns.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Flooding has devastated much of southern Alberta, killing three people and prompting authorities to evacuate the western Canadian city of Calgary's entire downtown -- an estimated 75,000 people.

Inside the city's hockey arena, the waters reached as high as the 10th row. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the flooding "stunning." Harper, a Calgary resident, said he never imagined there would be a flood of this magnitude in this part of Canada.

Overflowing rivers washed out roads and bridges, soaked homes, knocked out power and turned streets into dirt-brown waterways around southern Alberta.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Patricia Neely told reporters two of the three dead were recovered.
