We are a small department of 17 officers. We have a major highway (I65) cutting right through the middle of our jurisdiction. We are also surrounded by woods to our north, east and west. There have been many times when we get in a pursuit and it ends in the woods where we easily lose sight of the suspect. The few times a neighboring department had a drone, we were successful in capturing the suspect. This included a pursuit of a murder suspect who fled into the woods and a drone was used to get his location and provide information to officers approaching the suspect. Also with the interstate, there are unfortunately major vehicle accidents that we could use the drone for accident photographs and reconstruction.
On behalf of the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program, extends heartfelt thanks to Drone Assist Indiana for this donation to Sellersburg PD located in Illinois. Pilot Institute, SkyeBrowse & LEDA are also donating to this department as well.
This level of generosity and support is invaluable in enhancing public safety and enabling the department to serve its community with even greater effectiveness.
Together, these contributions have made a significant impact on the Sellersburg PD’s capabilities and its ability to uphold the safety and security of its residents.
The words of gratitude from the Sellersburg Police Department resonate deeply. Their appreciation for the donated drone highlights its importance in search and rescue missions, tracking fleeing criminals, documenting crime scenes, and various other critical tasks.
“With your support, the Sellersburg PD can now take another stride forward in its mission to serve and protect the citizens of Sellersburg at the highest level. Your contributions are not only enhancing the department’s abilities but also bolstering the entire community’s well-being.”
Once again, thanks to all in public safety for their unwavering commitment to the communities that they serve.. NPS-DDP.org is grateful to have partners like these who are making a real difference in the lives of countless individuals.
If you have plans to purchase a drone of any kind, be sure to contact us for the best pricing. Our partners will donate up to 10% of the net proceeds to NPS-DDP.org. If you purchase your drone elsewhere, you paid too much and missed out on an opportunity to help public safety. Donations like this is why our foundation exists: to support public safety. Please help us with a modest donation so more departments can use this technology.
The National Public Safety Drone Donation Program:
“We are pleased to see companies of all types making donations in support of the NPS-DDP mission to help put “ Eyes In The Sky For Every Department In Need™” The generosity of these types of donations cannot be underestimated as this hardware provides life-saving value in the hands of those who work so hard to protect the communities they serve. Also, it provides a tremendous amount of economic beneﬁt in saved man-hours. We encourage private citizens and any company including public safety to contact us to recycle any unused UAV back into service. If any of the drones that we receive are not suitable for public safety we have partnered with women and drones to donate these types of drones to STEM programs across the country to help beneﬁt youth education.” Said Mark Langley CEO of NPS-DDP
