LINCOLN (AP) — Lincoln’s mayor has made it clear to residents and police: No drones here.
The Lincoln Journal Star reported that a general order issued last month by Mayor Chris Beutler included the ban.
Other cities across the country have begun using the remote-controlled eyes in the sky to help catch crooks and aid in other public safety incidents.
Beutler said city officials must understand the emerging technology of drones before police buy them.
