The Netherlands Police Agency (KLPD) experiments with UAS

Gerard ten Buuren, who will give a presentation during the UAS event, wrote an article about the UAS pilots done by The Netherlands Police Agency (KLPD).
Air-to-ground surveillance systems provide a unique contribution to gain situational awareness.
