Speaking to the media, the director of the police training academy – Dilip Ray pointed out that the drone surveillance program has flight demonstrations and will include additional sessions in a cybercrime lab, indoor training and outdoors, among others.

“This session walks our managers through how to track drone use and abuse. We are primarily looking at the forensic component of it,” the official said.

According to the Managing Director (CEO) of D-Town Robotics Private Limited – Avinash Chandra Paul, the training included basic information on how to fly drones and prerequisites to remember while flying drones.

“It’s about training the department on drone knowledge, distance requirements, flight time, etc. We will also teach them drone forensics to monitor illegal drones coming from outside the country, if caught. This training would be useful to know the drones and, if necessary, to capture the data, to know where one comes from, where it goes, etc. “, did he declare.
