MERIDIAN - Idaho State Police has several drones now. They're helping investigators every week with crime and crash scenes.

ISP doesn't have a helicopter so troopers say having eyes in the sky helps them tremendously.

Captain John Ganske oversees the program and says using drones helps when cases go to court as well. Drone video is logged and used as evidence.

"I think anytime we can get an image it gives us a certain amount of jury appeal in cases we present, and it gives those looking at our cases the ability, the bird-s-eye view, of what's going on and just makes it more realistic," said Ganske.

ISP will soon also be flying a smaller drone indoors to help clear buildings. 3D mapping is also in the near future and Ganske says the will help cut the time investigators spend on a crash or crime scene down to about 20 minutes.

Yes,  local agencies will all soon have their own drone gear.  None will need to reach out to CAP drone pilots. A more in-depth CAP drone program as part of Cadet STEM to train them for future jobs in these fields would be a good thing. But CAP drones are not needed for ES usage.

Well, the first thing to remember is that Civil Air Patrol IS NOT A FIRST RESPONDER!!! We provide search at the pleasure of the local authorities. If they want to handle by themselves it's their call. Not ours and not the Air Forces.

Bingo.  That should be a sticky somewhere.
