New drones for Surrey and Sussex Police


UK – 14th April 2016

The Surrey and Sussex Police have acquired four new state-of-the-art Aeryon SkyRanger drones.

The Aeryon SkyRangers will add to the one already purchased by the forces in 2014.

Used to support policing operations such as missing person searches, protester responses, airport security and crash scene investigations, the Aeryon SkyRanger is designed to military and government specifications.

The remotely piloted aircraft can be used for both day time and night time flying, in high wind and heavy rain conditions, and can reach speeds of up to 30mph.

Thirty eight Police Officers from Surrey and Sussex Police Forces successfully completed their drone training to CAA competency standards with RUSTA in December 2015.

The project by Surrey and Sussex Police forces is currently the largest of its kind being carried out in the UK.
