Deploy drones to hover above next Boston Marathon, Police Commissioner says

24 Apr 2013

Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis is pushing for a city-run system of eye-level street surveillance technology and making a case for a dedicated NYPD-style anti-terrorism unit to protect Boston from another soft-target strike like the deadly marathon bombing. Davis said he would also consider deploying domestic reconnaissance drones to hover above next year’s Boston Marathon. The use of domestic surveillance drones to hunt terrorists in U.S. cities has been hotly debated, but yesterday New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said they were all but inevitable.
