NYPD Reveals a new Drone Program that has Civil Rights Groups Nervous

According to CNN, the NYPD has recently announced that it will be using drones. 

Recording crime and going into hazardous areas will be the main uses for these drones. The increase in surveillance has many civil rights groups worried. Chris Dunn, Associate Legal Director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said:

“Police cameras in the skies of New York City offer a new frontier for both public safety and abuses of power. When the NYPD provided us with an early look at a draft policy that would govern the department’s deployment of drones, the NYCLU expressed serious concerns. The NYPD did make some changes. We continue to believe the NYPD’s drone program poses a serious threat to New Yorkers’ privacy.”
