TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The Tyler Police Department recently purchased a new, state-of-the-art drone with help from Crime Stoppers.
Crime Stoppers funded the $3,500 purchase.
Officials with the Tyler Police Department said Wednesday that the drone will most be used in searches for missing children.
The drone has a four-mile radius, and the officers who operate have to remain in light-of-sight view of the drone at all times. The drone has the capability to record video and send it back to the police department.
We’ll have more on this later.
