Toni Pérez inaugurates the third congress of police drones
Early this morning the mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, inaugurated the third congress of police drones that has brought experts to the city for two days.
Pérez pointed out that the use of drones is "a pioneering service that has become essential for us", recalling once that Benidorm opted for the DTI roadmap and its certification the use of UAS technology was thought of "as one of the pillars of the Smart City.” And Benidorm, he recalled, "was the first Local Police force to establish itself as an authorized operator to handle this type of device in 2016"; and from that moment we are a national benchmark in this matter.
Experts, consultants, businessmen, and operators will present advances in battery efficiency, navigation, obstacle avoidance, and stabilization, as well as fundamental technical and legislative issues for the new Royal Decree on the operations of professionals and public service units that, thanks to these UAS achieve unsuspected dimensions of effectiveness just a few years ago in police, search and rescue, firefighting, border control, coastal surveillance and other uses such as European security projects and municipal management of urban air mobility.
The mayor of Benidorm congratulated the Department of Public Security, the Socio-Cultural Association of Benidorm Local Police, the University of Valencia, and all the professionals, operators, managers, experts, and companies who attend these training sessions for the congress initiative and knowledge for a better service to society, highlighting "the possibilities of UAS equipment as a useful tool to transform the city and improve the provision of services".
Pérez finished his speech at the opening ceremony by wishing them a nice stay in Benidorm, success in the flight tests, and the possibility of leisure and enjoyment for the congressmen and exhibitors.
