Governmental Use Of Drones: A Practical Look At Their Use By Municipalities And Related Fourth Amendment Implications
On September 13, 2016 I spoke on a panel entitled “Governmental Use of Drones: A Practical Look at their Use by Municipalities and Related Fourth Amendment Implications.” The panel was part of the 81st Annual International Municipal Lawyers Association Conference.
The first part of this presentation address Riverside County’s (CA) Certificate of Authorization from the FAA and its test program to enhance the County’s ability to direct critical resources towards saving lives during search and rescue missions. The second part of this presentation will discuss the future of aerial surveillance law in an era of drones. Focusing on 4th Amendment issues, data retention, transparency, and accountability measures.
