Arlington PD gets approval for drones

Posted: Updated:

The Arlington Police Department won approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly remote controlled helicopters commonly known as drones.

They were used during the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium two years ago.

The aircraft are equipped with cameras and can fly up to 40 miles per hour.

The city says they will be used to take photos of accident and crime scenes, and search for missing people.

Arlington is now the largest urban police department in the nation to gain clearance to use drones.
