The NYPD’s Aviation Unit has had to increase its monitoring systems for illegally flown drones. The recreational drones pose a threat as they are operated in air space for helicopters and commercial aircraft. The NYPD is now tracking rogue drones through technology in their helicopter and following the drones until they land. Penalties include fines that can add up to thousands of dollars and even a charge of reckless endangerment, reports Staten Island Live.
