Will my privacy be impacted?

No, your privacy will not be impacted. Maintaining an individual’s privacy and protecting the civil liberties of all persons is of paramount importance to the Blaine Police Department. We are bound by federal law and the laws of the State of Minnesota that direct the use of UAS as it relates to the privacy of citizens. Again, our UAS will not be used for arbitrary surveillance and must comply with all federal regulations and laws.
