The police department in Lancaster, California, will launch an aerial surveillance program in May with the goal of responding faster to reported accidents and crime scenes. The plane will be piloted and will be equipped with optical equipment and cameras in order to record what is happening on the ground. The cameras will be able to zoom in much closer than what a pilot could see with the naked eye.
