Safer skies with safer drones

Devon and Cornwall Police and Dorset Police are excited to announce that we are now running drone awareness sessions for members of the public.

The session is a 3 hour classroom based input from serving police officers who are current drone operators within the police.

The aim is to make you a safer and more responsible drone pilot by giving you some basic knowledge and understanding around your responsibilities, current legislation and considerations around privacy. This also gives you the opportunity to interact with experienced police drone pilots and although there is no flight training, we will be sharing some practical tips that we've learnt from our years of flying drones.

The sessions will be run throughout the year at a number of different venues around the three counties. They are aimed at anyone who uses drones or is thinking about buying one in the future.

We are the first police force in the UK to offer sessions like this and with new legislation on the horizon this is an ideal opportunity to become a pilot who stays legal and safe when flying drones.

A course to understand how to fly your drone safely, legally and responsibly.

The topics covered include:

  • the law
  • pilot responsibilities
  • privacy
  • the drone code
  • and more

You will also get the opportunity to speak to police drone operators.
