Small Unmanned Aerial Systems


The mission of the LVMPD Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) Program to find new and innovative ways to utilize emerging UAS technology to support the public safety mission and operate safely within the National Airspace System (NAS), with transparency and respect for the privacy rights of the citizens that we serve.

The primary use of Department sUAS is to provide investigative support to all sections of the Department. The remote pilot-in-command (RPIC) may respond to specific incidents to capture images and video that may assist investigators with criminal investigations or aid public safety personnel when responding to emergency calls for service. These incidents may include, but are not limited to, tactical situations with SWAT, accident reconstruction, active shooters, officer-involved shooting incidents, situations involving hazardous materials, fires, search and rescue missions, significant incidents, and other public safety missions.

We operate in the Las Vegas valley to include all unincorporated areas of Clark County Nevada.

Upcoming scheduled operations include:
