NAVARRO COUNTY–The Navarro County Sheriff’s Office has added another new piece of technology, a Mavic 2 Enterprise Drone to the current drone program.
The drone is equipped with a FLIR camera, spotlight, beacon strobe light and speaker which will allow the pilot to speak to a lost or missing person or give voice commands to a suspect when necessary.
The new drone is able to be airborne quicker and due to it’s smaller compact size, it can also be flown indoors when necessary.
The new drone was 100 percent fully funded by utilizing the drug seizure fund. This means that taxpayers did not have to pay a penny toward the purchase. The funds used to obtain this drone were from money previously seized from a drug dealer.
