Why does the Waterfront Park Police Department need drones?
The Waterfront Park Police Department is committed to providing the best service to our community. Seaside Park, New Jersey, with its vast ocean and very high population density, was the target of the Ahmad Khan Rahimi terror attack in 2016.
In a town where so many children go missing each year, the drones will give the police department a better chance of finding the kids in less time.
The 24/7 watch of the beach also needs the help of drones. Every minute of the struggle of those in distress is precious. Drones will allow police departments to pinpoint the exact location of individuals and drop flotation devices.
