When it comes to drone integration, effective training, documentation and management are all critical components of a successful program. That’s why we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Consortiq that will give Cape customers access to best-in-class training and management consulting services.
The drones will be available to assist on service calls for 10 hours per day, with plans to increase over time. Drones will be launched from the roof of the CVPD headquarters and will be teleoperated by an officer in the command center to the location of the call, in most cases arriving well ahead of the responding ground units.
“Chula Vista is modeling the future of drone integration in public safety by utilizing drones as first responders” said Chris Rittler, CEO of Cape.
ST. CLOUD, Florida — The St. Cloud Police Department wants to take its drone program to the next level.

It currently takes an officer about six to ten minutes to reach the location of an emergency call in Chula Vista. A drone, however, can get there in half that time, and those crucial few minutes could be the difference in saving a life. KUSI’s Dani Ruberti spoke with the Chula Vista Police Department to talk about how they are using drones to help keep neighborhoods safe.
