Drones ok for the rest of us but not over the district of criminals

Chief: Drones good for Fairfax, not for D.C.

“Drones in the skies over Northern Virginia makes sense, though they likely won’t be monitoring the District in the near future, says the D.C. chief of police, also a homeland security expert.

Chief Cathy Lanier, who founded the department’s first Homeland Security/Counter-Terrorism Branch, has been following the use of drones since they were first implemented over American soil in Arizona to help monitor the U.S.-Mexican border.

“There are a lot of different uses for it,” Lanier told WTOP while speaking on “Ask the Chief.” She doesn’t have any plans to purchase drones for D.C. use at this time, saying they wouldn’t be useful.

“I think it’s entirely different for a sprawling county like Fairfax,” she says. “
