McGinn: Seattle police ending its unmanned drone program

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced Thursday that the police department has ended its unmanned drone program.

“Today I spoke with Seattle Police Chief John Diaz and we agreed that it was time to end the unmanned aerial vehicle program, so that SPD can focus its resources on public safety and the community building work that is the department’s priority. The vehicles will be returned to the vendor,” McGinn said in a released statement.
