Pullman PD plans second drone day


August 9, 2018 | View PDF

Pullman Police Department plans a second annual Aerial Adventure Day Saturday, Aug. 11, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Kruegel Park in Pullman.

To celebrate National Model Aviation Day, the department will put its new aviation technology on display for visitors to learn about drone law enforcement techniques, watch expert RC flyers in action and even fly drones themselves.

Attendees can put their flying skills to the test in a drone obstacle course, which PPD Commander Chris Tennant says resembles a frisbee golf course. Visitors can fly drones provided by PPD at the event, but are welcome to bring their own drones.

Saturday's event will also feature flying demonstrations from Spokane and Palouse region radio control, educational material about drones and food from Fork in the Road food truck.

Pullman added drones to their law enforcement practices last year.
