Drone Operations Unit

The Palisades Park Police Department operates an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Drone Unit, that consists of police officers that are specially trained in the operation and procedures for public safety drone flight.  The drone unit’s operators fly under Part 107 and hold a daytime waiver, so that operators may fly drones at night.

The Drone Unit operates a DJI Mavic Pro Platinum.  The Drone Unit uses this sophisticated tool for a variety of different safety functions, such as search and rescue, missing children/adults, traffic collision and crime scene documentation, evidence search at inaccessible locations, fire incidents, HAZMAT incidents, traffic and pedestrian monitoring at large events, hostage/barricade situations, and more.
