QCPD to deploy drones during Undas 2022
MANILA, Philippines — Drones will be deployed to monitor cemeteries during Undas or All Saints’ Day in Quezon City, said the Quezon City Police District (QCPD).
QCPD director Brig. Gen. Nicolas Torre III said this to reporters on Saturday after announcing that the QCPD will start deploying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones in anti-crime operations.
“The drones will send live feed to the command center,” said Torre.
According to Torre, the QCPD currently has 20 drones at its disposal which will be utilized to track down criminals, especially during Undas.
But he bared that the Philippine National Police headquarters at Camp Crame and the base of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Camp Aguinaldo, will remain no-fly zones for the drones.
He also said that the QCPD also plans to install iPads in its patrol cars — which currently number 200 in total.
