Drones For First Responders


  • Drones are used in various operations including SWAT, patrol operations, accident scenes and so much more. We have a team of trainers that will assist you with questions you have about the types of drones available, maintenance costs, and local, state, and federal regulations concerning drones and airspace. This course will fill up fast due to the high demand in this new sector of law enforcement.

We all realize that drones are the wave of the future in public safety, which means the training necessary must also meet the stringent demands related to this new technology. This 32-hour class prepares public safety personnel to begin the process of starting a UAS / drone program in their agency as well as to sit for the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot exam which is required for a public safety UAS program in the United States. Students will spend class time on topics such as federal and local regulations, Airspace, and public safety exceptions. After the class, you will feel confident to pass the part 107 exam and confident in using a drone in the field. This class comes with a three-day option where the last day of flight time is not needed due to the experience level of the attending officer. This course is limited in student attendance due to the nature of the program and the space available.


Cancellation Policy

The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 15-day prior notice from the course start date when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend will be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than 15-days notice will cause a department credit that can be used towards another future training event within one year from the original course date. We will charge no-shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been made. We offer a one-year future course credit as well for any no-show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of June 23, 2021, and you as a representative of your agency agree to abide by this policy by registering for any course. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this cancellation policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, and we base our travel cost including instructor pay on registration fees. This policy is considered a binding contract between BSTS LLC and the student or student agency or company.

    I was designated by my agency to research and start up a new drone program. I went into this course now knowing what to expect. This three day training provided me with all of the tools to pass the 107 exam, and made me confident in explaining what we would need to kickstart our new program to my command staff. I’d recommend this course to anyone that isn’t familiar with FAA regulations/drone usage!
