Cental Visayas police use airborne technology to combat crime

In an effort to institutionalize the use of aerial technology in preventing and solving crimes, the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 (Central Visayas) has trained drone patrol officers, according to a police official on Friday.

According to Brig. Gen. Jerry Bearis, certain staff members attended a one-day Basic Drone Operation and Maintenance Workshop on Thursday to better prepare them to use drones to maintain the successes of the police’s anti-criminality campaign.

The presentation at the Multi-Purpose Hall of the regional police headquarters in Camp Sergio Osmea Sr. here introduced the police to extremely advanced airborne technology suitable for patrolling, pursuit operations, and foreseeing security threats.

The highly anticipated Sinulog 2023 was successfully held in Cebu City and Carmen, Cebu, thanks to PRO-7’s use of the most cutting-edge aerial surveillance technology. The employment of drones, portable CCTV, and helicopter patrols improved security, according to Bearis.

Drone patrols will not only be employed during significant events like the Sinulog, according to Lt. Col. Gerard Ace Pelare, a spokesman for Bearis, but the PRO-7 aims to incorporate it into routine everyday proactive anti-crime operations.

“Technology utilization is undoubtedly a tried-and-true method of reducing and preventing crime. In an interview, Pelare stated that the use of drones gives the police a larger viewpoint because the view is from above, making it useful in pursuing criminals or foreseeing traffic issues.

Drone patrolling could be a helpful tool to maintain the gains in the anti-criminality campaign because the Philippine National Police cannot afford to post helicopters in every police station or office.

Pelare added that a dedicated team under the Operations Division would be assigned to every city and all provincial police offices in Central Visayas to manage the drone patrol activities alongside the foot patrolling police.

He said that Bearis had urged the neighborhood police to purchase airborne equipment for use in their local anti-crime initiatives.
