Drones being used to help combat crime in Cape Town

Date:18 February 2022 Author: Byron Lukas Tags:, ,

Cape Town’s Law Enforcement has found a new way to combat crime in gang-ridden communities across the Metro, with the help of drones that will give the officers an eye-in-the-sky to keep watch.

According to Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis, the City of Cape Town will be investing in this technology to help keep residents safer in the city.

“In the months ahead we’ll be testing this tech thoroughly, and we have high hopes that it will make a big difference for our crime-fighting efforts in the city,” Hill-Lewis said.

Cape Town Metro Police and SAPS recently executed an arrest warrant in Grassy Park with a drone deployed overhead to keep watch.
