Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are also called UAVs can be defined as the air craft that runs
on a pre-programmed flight system or a remote controlled system and contains no human
passenger and pilot on board. A few decades ago, UAVs were only science fiction concepts,
however, now they have become modern day reality. All types of remote control aircraft and
helicopters can also be classified under the category of UAVs. Such devices have been used by
various companies for different purposes across the globe. Although, the technology became
very common, however, still it is mainly used by military departments for various purposes
(Straub, 2014).
The common uses of UAVs by non-law enforcement agencies include delivery of
products to customers, commercial/motion picture filmmaking, for the exploration of oil and gas
extraction, recreational use, real estate and construction, and for crop production and monitoring
of crop growth etc. The use of such vehicles by law enforcement agencies is totally different and
is always controversial. Law enforcement companies use UAVs for different reasons including
search and rescue, reconstruction of traffic collision, the investigation of active suspects, analysis
of crime scene, surveillance, and crowed monitoring (Imwinkelried, 2010).

safety agencies for search and rescue missions, especially in situation where the rescuers cannot
afford even a small mistake. The best quality of drones is that they can cover a large area of land
within a short time and can easily identify human figure with the help of thermal cameras fixed
