  • Footage shows how Lincolnshire Police used the DJI M30 Series to find three high-risk missing people in two separate incidents; 
  • The drone helped guide officers to a pensioner with dementia and located two missing people in the dark to ensure fast safeguarding;
  • Special Sergeant Kevin Taylor says the drone's portability and quick deployment, along with some of the aircraft's new functionality, have proven to be a real benefit when deploying to incidents.   

These videos show how the DJI M30 Series drone helped Lincolnshire Police find three high-risk missing people in two separate incidents. 

 

 

The drone - with thermal, visual, zoom and laser rangefinder capabilities - provided vital real-time situational awareness, enabling officers to detect the missing people who were located in areas which were otherwise difficult to see by ground crews.

 

 

The two incidents demonstrated the value of police drones and how the M30 can be used for search and rescue.

Special Sergeant Kevin Taylor, Chief Pilot of the Lincolnshire Police Drone Team, said: “We have had two M30s operational for three weeks now and have already had numerous positive results including locating wanted persons and the safeguarding of vulnerable missing persons.

 

 

"The portability and quick deployment, along with some of the aircraft's new functionality, have proven to be a real benefit when deploying to incidents.”
