Vision Tactical, a security company which is based in Houghton, recently launched drone capabilities which will deliver air support to security and emergency services.

Drones are being used by tactical teams and response officers to respond to crime incidents as well as in the search for missing people and the monitoring of traffic around road accidents.

“We remain committed to embracing new technologies to deliver high quality, cost-effective services and protection,” said Yaseen Theba, director of Vision Tactical.

The technology will be used to enhance and improve traditional methods of responding to emergencies. Vision Tactical currently uses the DJI Phantom 4 Drone and the Parrot Bebop Drone, which is controlled by a close ground support package.

The success of this advancement is the proactive real-time intelligence it provides during rapidly evolving situations such as shootings, robberies, hijackings, rescue operations and other high-risk missions. Trials and consultations are ongoing to develop more guidance for how the drones will be used more effectively to help keep the community safe by offering an aerial perspective of scenes.
