PNG Police to use Drone Technology to fight crime

PNG Police Minister Bryan Kramer while giving an update on the recent killings in Tari said, high-level discussions on a strategic deployment action plan with the use of drone technology and satellite surveillance will be used to track and apprehend those on the run.

"High-level discussions on a strategic deployment action plan with the use of drone technology and satellite surveillance will be used to track and apprehend those on the run.

"However the use of drones for commercial or law enforcement purposes is not regulated by Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Papua New Guinea (CASA). In the absence of such regulatory framework, moving forward, a bill that would expand law enforcement agencies’ abilities to use Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones is first expected to be tabled in parliament.

"This piece of legislation will govern the use of drones, for examples, when taking photograph at traffic crash scenes, monitor correctional facilities, track prison escapees, control crowds, etc.., without compromising civilian privacy or trespassing properties. Laws will also have to govern how the footage and images captured can be used, stored and disposed.

"Good to see the Police Department now has a Minister that is keen to modernise the Royal Constabulary by using the power of technology in law enforcement in Papua New Guinea."
