At 05:00 this morning, the police in Stockholm began camera surveillance of Stockholm’s inner city with UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) vessels, what we colloquially call drones.

The surveillance will last until 18:00 tomorrow, Saturday 7 November. The police write in a news post that drones will be used to investigate, prevent or deter crimes and disturbances. It is not clear whether the drones will be a recurring element in the Stockholm police’s work.
