    I fly a DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus Falcon as part of my job with the Public Safety (aka "security") department at a hospital system in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The hospital paid for me to attend a 3 day UAV/Part 107 class and paid for my FAA Part 107 test fee. The Phantom is FAA registered and we use it to assist with parking patrol along with our Foot, Bike and mobile patrols. It is a good deterrence and adds another form of surveillance and safety during high traffic times such as morning shift change.

    ok i pressed pause half way through this to type this so maybe u answer this .. but…. you are only going to catch stupid criminals, the problem with that is stupid criminals will get caught anyway. one thing history tells us that necessity is the mother of all invention and most criminals are so smart the security and police industries are always 2 steps behind and playing catch up permanently.
    (if u doubt this you are only fooling yourself) if you think they will not know black spots or gaps in the system within hours of you setting it up then again you are just fooling yourself, they will take your technology and use it against you.
    I agree it will work for static security and many other aspects, but the one you outline is not a good one lol…..

    BIG BROTHER surveillance, is not the way of a free society. Those willing to trade freedom for security, deserve neither. The whole idea is unconstitutional anyways. BTW, about the cell phone, some of us know how to disable being tracked.

    why not take a video instead of a photo every second?

    Give me a break! It’s hard enough to deal with privacy issues now. Your plan would ignite a rush of hostility towards our businesses.
