Drones fly into Hampton city limits ready for action

The drones have arrived in Hampton.

And the city’s first responders have huge plans for their use.

Think aerial searches for missing people, panoramic crime scene photos, battling structural fires, fatal traffic accidents or water rescues.

With four sleek, mini-copters — two “Inspires” and two “ DJI Phantom 4s” — each equipped with a forward-looking infrared [FLIR] camera, members of the Hampton Police Division Unmanned Aerial Vehicle [UAV] Unit say they are ready for a mission.
