Today I read an article on a public safety agency receiving concern from citizens about the purchase of a new drone. As we have learned time and time again, it is absolutely necessary to have direct community engagement with citizens and elected officials to inform about the agencies drone program, the agencies policies, reassure privacy protection, maintain transparency throughout, provide regular reports on activity, etc. This guide is available to DRONERESPONDERS members (membership is free at DRONERESPONDERS.ORG) by accessing the Resource Center, open the Starting a Program folder, then the Outreach sub folder.
This guide is in template form and is a Word document designed for you to customize for your organization. If you have questions or have similar info you’d like to share, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and healthy!
