Police plan for drones over Seattle

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash.-People get a chance Thursday evening to question police about their plans to use drones throughout the city.

The Seattle Police Department is one of the first in the nation to receive permission from the federal government to start the remote control aerial vehicles. 

Police say they expect to use drones in search and rescue, accidents and natural disasters, and unusual crime scenes.
