Police Department —
Drone Program

The mission of the Poland Township Police Department’s Drone Program is to provide airborne support to police operations in a safe, responsible, and transparent manner to preserve the peace and increase the quality of life in Poland Township. 
Small, remotely operated Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS), also commonly referred to as drones, are an efficient and effective way of providing law enforcement critical information to respond to calls for service and emergency situations, or to conduct criminal investigations. Some examples include; providing an overhead view of an area or incident for ground personnel, safely clearing the interior of buildings, providing detailed documentation of crime and accident scenes, and searching for lost or missing persons.
